Altered states Research
The ASDB provides background information to foster the understanding of scientific data. Here you can learn how altered state experiences are measured within scientific studies.
In the ASDB you can find scientific data on various altered states experiences. You can compare what experiences are elicited by different drugs and non-pharmacological methods that induce altered states.
The Altered States Blog keeps you updated on current research. We feature the latest news from conferences, scientific publications and other scientific sources of altered states research.
We help to improve Wikipedia articles. We formed a task force to supplement important scientific information about altered state experiences and methods that induce them.
Bringing science to the People
The ASDB was developed by neuroscientists and university students.
The ASDB can be used by scientists and non-scientists. The ASDB provides a comprehensive overview of existing literature on the psychometric assessment of altered states of consciousness.
The ASDB constitutes a unique encyclopedic research tool. Additionally, we work on related Wikipedia articles. With our Wikiproject we bring scientific information on experiences induced by different drugs and other mind altering methods into public awareness. Only unbiased, scientific data constitutes a reliable source to avoid unintended effects.
