People who take magic mushrooms often report a boost in sensory information. Colors seem brighter, solid objects seem to buckle and sway, and hidden noises seem to come to the surface. In reality, according to research quoted by TIME, magic mushrooms actually reduce activity in portions of the brain that deal with the senses.
Typically, a sense signal comes into the brain, bounces from one sense hub to another, and is interpreted by the brain in a specific way. Mushrooms disrupt this process, suppressing some signals while sending others that haven’t been processed. All of the sensory changes people feel come due to that disruption.
