This may explain why users under the influence of magic mushrooms report experiencing feelings that normally remain hidden. When information is less filtered through the brain, more impressions reach our consciousness. Again, this may also explain why users after using magic mushrooms often report new insights, sometimes with therapeutic effect.

Another indication of the therapeutic effect of psilocybin, is that the medial prefrontal cortex activity ceased, a brain region that has been extra active in depressed people.
