Altered States

In this new CARTA series, experts address altered states of the mind that are deliberately induced by humans – from the use of psychoactive compounds both natural and man-made, to self-induced states of consciousness and awareness, to anomalous states precipitated by different physical conditions and behaviors. Find out what is known about origins and mechanisms of these mind-altering practices, and also (when known) how they affect the minds of other species. In doing so, researchers hope to gain new insights into the origins and workings of the human mind.
