Sarah, is utilizing her research in cognitive neuroscience, focused on psychedelics, embodiment and immersive technology to connect humans to their body, each other and the environment. Sarah published the first paper on predictive coding and psychedelics back in 2017. She tried VR for the first time after a visit to Burning Man and pivoted her research, opening the first VR lab in the motor control department of Radboud university.
Since completing her Master’s she has been consulting and developing for many companies in the immersive field from pain management (Karuna Labs), bias training (Debias VR) and empathy-driven learning (Facebook). She has opened her own company focused on increasing the bandwidth of human connection with immersive technology. Her prototype called Meu has been hailed as working towards realizing the work of Terence McKenna’s vision (https://gen.medium.com/most-vr-is-tot…) by Douglas Rushkoff and called “Trippy and super compelling” by Kent Bye (https://voicesofvr.com/780-invoking-p….
As part of her work, she utilized consensual data collected from Red Light Holland microdosing app in the Netherlands as well as market research and scientific research to help inform legislators in Oregon, Washington, and other places and promote responsible accessibility to Natural Psilocybin products for adults.
