Magic mushrooms and their psychedelic effects have kept people traveling for thousands of years, but it's only recently that scientists have understood what happens in your brain when you ingest mushrooms.

Studies show that psilocybin, the active ingredient in mushrooms, can be helpful for a variety of mental health problems, including major depression.

The chemical psilocybin in mushrooms is broken down in the liver into psychoactive psilocin. The main cell type in the brain affected by psilocybin is known as the 5-HT2A receptor.

It's one of the brain's receptors for serotonin, a substance that affects mood. "If you block 5-HT2A before giving it a psychedelic, you won't get the typical effects in humans," says Doss.

The psychedelic effects of mushrooms can begin in the thalamus of the brain, which filters out any information you get from the outside world. "Some people suggest that psychedelics turn off this locking mechanism," said Doss.
