What is microdosing with psychedelics?
Microdosing is often treated as a sensationalist subject by the media. Is it really that popular, or just a short hype?
Does it work or do we experience a strong placebo-effect?
Why would you microdose?
Can it be a tool for mindfulness and personal leadership?
The team at Microdosing.nl organises this first seminar exclusively dedicated to microdosing: OPEN THE DOORS. This all-afternoon event focusses on current research, the working mechanisms of microdosing and its implications for health and personal transformation.
But more so, OPEN THE DOORS promises to be an inspiring gathering for the fast-growing circle of enthusiasts: researchers, psychologists, personal development experts, harm-reduction professionals, those new to microdosing and those who’ve microdosed extensively. All will be there to connect and share experiences and insights. You can imagine how excited we all are.

Beckley foundation’s self-blinding microdosing study
Balasz Sigeti, PhD (ISMMS, New York)
Balasz is a member of the ‘Beckley foundation’s self-blinding microdosing project’, an innovative study that allows microdosers to implement placebo control during self-experimentation. The project is expected to lunch in the summer of 2018 and will be the first to collect data on microdosing in a placebo controlled manner. This data will allow us to investigate whether microdosers feel benefits due to the placebo effect or because of the pharmacological action of microdosing.
So, what is happening in the brain though…?
Josephine Marschall (Leiden University)
Josephine is currently involved with psychedelic research at Leiden University. The most recent project focuses on the acute and additive effects of microdosing on creative thinking and flow over a 2-week period. During this presentation, I will be explaining the results of past research investigating the effects of moderates doses on neural functioning. With regard to these neural correlates, I will also be discussing potential clinical implications of microdosing.
