Psychedelics and music: neuroscience and therapeutic implications


Barrett, Frederick S; Preller, Katrin H; Kaelen, Mendel (2018). Psychedelics and music: neuroscience and therapeutic implications. International Review of Psychiatry, 30(4):350-362.

Abstract

From the beginning of therapeutic research with psychedelics, music listening has been consistently used as a method to guide or support therapeutic experiences during the acute effects of psychedelic drugs. Recent findings point to the potential of music to support meaning-making, emotionality, and mental imagery after the administration of psychedelics, and suggest that music plays an important role in facilitating positive clinical outcomes of psychedelic therapy. This review explores the history of, contemporary research on, and future directions regarding the use of music in psychedelic research and therapy, and argues for more detailed and rigorous investigation of the contribution of music to the treatment of psychiatric disorders within the novel framework of psychedelic therapy.
