Claire Kaplan

Graduate Student

Claire graduated with a B.S. in Neuroscience from the College of William and Mary. She is currently a 4th year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program working with Dr. Alec Solway in his Computational Cognitive Neuroscience & Psychiatry Lab (CCNP). Her research utilizes a combination of neuroimaging, psychopharmacology, and advanced computational techniques to investigate neural circuit mechanisms and how these differ in psychiatric illnesses, such as anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

After graduating college, Claire moved to Taiwan for a year to study Mandarin-Chinese. She then worked as a post-baccalaureate research fellow at the National Institutes of Mental Health and at the Lieber Brain Institute for Brain Development at Johns Hopkins where her research explored the effective connectivity of key brain regions related to contextual learning and delusional beliefs in schizophrenia.
