Psilocybin works by binding to serotonin receptors in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in mood regulation, appetite, sleep, learning, and the cardiovascular system. By binding to serotonin receptors, psilocybin disrupts the actions of serotonin, which accounts for its effects on the body. For example, psilocybin may affect the way information is processed in the brain, which could lead to changes in perception, mood, and cognition.
