In this episode, Bryan Roth is talking with our host Wilf Nelson about how serotonin and hallucinogens bind. Hallucinogens have received a lot of press recently for their uses in medicine and helping those with conditions traditionally resistant to other medical interventions but we will still don't know a lot about how they actually bind to cells. If we knew that if we had the secrets of what a hallucinogen is doing when it attaches to a neuron, or more specifically a receptor, would we need hallucinogens or could we find better and safer workarounds? On this episode of Think Fast, we talk with one of the scientists who is doing exactly that, breaking down the secrets of neurons and receptors to advance our future in both neuroscience and neuroscience medicine.
