A bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering helped Prateep Beed to learn the basics of innovation & design. Soon he realised that machine design is far from humanised design since prototypes often lack the individualism required to cater to the needs of everyone yet at an individual level.
He then pursued further studies in Cognitive Psychology & Neurosciences to better understand and relate to the human mind. Prateep went on to complete his PhD in 2010 in Neurosciences. At present, he works as a senior research scientist at the Charité University Medicine, Berlin.
Given the interdisciplinary academic background, Prateep in 2016 founded Sensory.eu to consult individuals and businesses on how to leverage potential from the advances in neurosciences be it in decision making, analytical thinking or holistic systems solutions using both knowledge from fundamental neurosciences and cutting-edge neurotechnology.
Serotonin regulates critical cognitive functions including sleep, anxiety and mood amongst others. A subset of psychedelics activate the serotonergic system in the brain by either increasing serotonin at the synaptic cleft or directly activating serotonin receptors on a variety of cells. Due to the diversity of neurons (inhibitory versus excitatory) and serotonergic receptors it makes imaging studies (e.g. fMRI) difficult to interpret and understand the effect of psychedelics. We are investigating the role of serotonin and psychedelics in key brain […]more details
