    There isn’t any one particular area of psychology that looks at those things, they’re addressed by researchers/methods across a variety of disciplines (e.g. neuroscience, cognitivists etc.). Consciousness particularly is covered by a lot of people ranging from philosophers (e.g. Daniel Dennett) to neuroscientists (e.g. Francis Crick and Christof Koch).

    Most of the research on things like the effects of drugs are probably done by clinical or health psychology researchers, not because it is exclusive to their domain, but those kind of questions/concerns are more relevant in that field. Similarly with hypnosis or meditation, as its commonly looked at in a therapeutic sense.
