Brief Summary:
This exploratory open-label phase 1b, ascending dose study is to evaluate the effects of psilocybin on cognition in patients with Chronic Short-Lasting Unilateral Neuralgiform Headache Attacks (SUNHA)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Short Lasting Unilateral Neuralgiform Headache Attacks Drug: Psilocybin Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The study aims to:

Determine the safety and tolerability of psilocybin when administered to patients with chronic SUNHA

Determine the effects of psilocybin on cognition when administered to patients with chronic SUNHA

Explore the change in frequency, duration, and intensity of headache attacks with escalating doses of psilocybin in patients with chronic SUNHA

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of patients with treatment emergent AEs (TEAES) [ Time Frame: From first dose administered through to the last follow up visit, approximately 39 days ]
  2. Treatment-related changes in Paired Associates Learning (PAL) scores and evaluation of dose response [ Time Frame: From first dose administered until the las dose administered, approximately 11 days ]
  3. Treatment-related changes in Spatial Working Memory (SWM) scores and evaluation of dose response [ Time Frame: From first dose administered until the las dose administered, approximately 11 days ]
  4. Treatment-related changes in Reaction Time Index (RTI) scores and evaluation of dose response [ Time Frame: From first dose administered until the las dose administered, approximately 11 days ]
  5. Treatment-related changes in Rapid Visual Information Processing (RVP) scores and evaluation of dose response [ Time Frame: From first dose administered until the las dose administered, approximately 11 days ]
  6. Change in frequency of headache attacks [ Time Frame: From screening until the follow up visit, approximately 39 days ]
  7. Change in duration of headache attacks [ Time Frame: From screening until the follow up visit, approximately 39 days ]
  8. Change in intensity of headache attacks [ Time Frame: From screening until the follow up visit, approximately 39 days ]
    Patients will complete a diary on a daily basis and capture the intensity of their headaches by assigning a score out of 10 where 0 is pain free and 10 is excruciating pain
