Andrew Gallimore

Andrew R Gallimore is a computational neurobiologist, pharmacologist, and chemist with a deep interest in psychedelics (DMT). He has written the book Alien Information Theory and published a Master Course on Psychedelics and the Brain. He is currently based at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan.


From his bio: “Dr. Andrew Gallimore is a computational neurobiologist, pharmacologist, chemist, and writer who has been interested in the neural basis of psychedelic drug action for many years and is the author of a number of articles and research papers on the powerful psychedelic drug, N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and its effects on the brain and consciousness. He recently collaborated with DMT pioneer Dr. Rick Strassman, author of DMT: The Spirit Molecule, to develop a pharmacokinetic model of DMT as the basis of a target-controlled intravenous infusion protocol for extended journeys in DMT space. His current interests focuses on DMT as a tool for gating access to extradimensional realities and how this can be understood in terms of the neuroscience of information. He currently lives and works in Japan.”
