How ketamine affects the brain over time

Cybin and Kernel Announce Results from Kernel Flow® Piloting of Feasibility Study Measuring Ketamine’s Effects on the Brain

The results from Cybin and Kernel’s brain imaging study are in!

The findings suggest that a single dose of ketamine has a lasting effect on the way information flows through the brain.

Subjects’ brain activity patterns were relatively stable for 5 days leading up to the ketamine session.

After a low dose of ketamine, there were significant changes in functional connectivity lasting at least 5 days.
