Hi my name is Claire Suisman and I'm a third year undergraduate studying psychology at McGill University in Montreal, QC. I grew up in Los Angeles and have always had an interest in exploring the human mind. For the past 2 years, I've volunteered as a research assistant at the Raz Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory. Our work explores many areas of psychological research including attention, expectation, placebos, and the influence of altered planes of consciousness on brain function. I plan to pursue a Master's and then PhD in clinical psychology.
