After many years of service to the community, Ezequiel Di Paolo has stepped down as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Adaptive Behavior.
I will take over the reins from the current issue onward.
It’s going to be a tough act to follow, but I hope that I will be able to further consolidate the journal as a truly interdisciplinary forum for current research in the mind sciences.
For more information, please read the editorial we co-authored to mark this transition.
Please consider sending us your latest work! 🙂

On the 5th of June there will be an event on “Mazatec culture, shamanism and sacred plants” at the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos, Mexico.
I have been invited as one of the speakers and my presentation will be about the latest research on the psychological effects of the use of sacred mushrooms.
The title is: “Nuevos estudios sobre los efectos psicológicos de los hongos sagrados: Neurociencia y modelación”.
I propose that we can better understand the latest neuroscientific results about altered brain function, especially related to increased levels of entropy, from the perspective of complex systems theory.
