MSSF Meetings

On the third Tuesday of each month from September thru May, the Mycological Society of San Francisco has a General Meeting at the Randall Museum.
The highlight of each meeting is a speaker with slides on some aspect of mycology and mushrooming: ecology, taxonomy, mycophagy, sociology, etc. Before each meeting members bring collections which are put on display and identified. Refreshments are served before the meeting.

  • Doors open and identification starts at 7 pm.
  • Announcements begin at 8 pm, followed by the presentation. (The December meeting is replaced by a dinner at a different location.)
  • Note: All regular General Meetings are open to the public. Some meetings have reserved seating or may have an admission fee for non-members.

  • MSSF and Bay Area Applied Mycology are pleased to host Dr. Frederick Barrett. He will share information about the Acute and Persisting Effects of Psilocybin in Healthy and Patient Populations.
    As the psychedelic renaissance blooms, many experimental laboratories and medical schools around the world are joining in to contribute to our knowledge of how psychedelic drugs affect the mind and brain. We will discuss recent findings from controlled laboratory studies with psilocybin, and review preliminary data from a number of studies at Johns Hopkins investigating the effects of psilocybin in healthy volunteers as well as those with mood disorders.

    Biography:
    Dr. Barrett earned his PhD in cognitive neuroscience at U.C. Davis, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in behavioral pharmacology, studying the neuropsychopharmacology of psilocybin with Dr. Roland Griffiths at Johns Hopkins University. He uses music and pharmacological interventions, along with behavioral measures, computerized testing, and brain imaging techniques, to explore the neural basis of emotional functioning and altered states of consciousness. His current research focuses on the acute and long-term effects of classic and atypical hallucinogens on cognition, emotion, and brain function.
