A PhD student at the Integrated Program in Neuroscience and the Douglas Mental Health Institute at McGill University, Ms. Crafa is interested in research methods for combining anthropology and neuroscience to study cross-cultural differences and similarities. Currently, her work focuses on approaches for integrating brain-based research with medical anthropology and transcultural psychiatry and on exploring the theoretical implications contemporary neuroscience has for definingĀ culture.
