Description

Katrin Preller received her PhD in Psychology and Neuroscience from University of Zurich, Switzerland in 2013. After completing her PhD, she investigated the effects of psychedelics on self-perception and social cognition. Her research interests are centred around the neuropharmacology of emotional and cognitive processes in health and psychiatric illnesses, as well as (pharmacological) neuroimaging analysis methodology. She is particularly interred in substance use disorders as well as the role of the serotonin system in emotion and cognition. She uses psilocybin and LSD to elucidate the role of 5-HT2A/1A receptor functions in human cognition.
