Fredric Schiffer, MD, is a research associate at McLean and an assistant professor of psychiatry, part-time, at the Harvard Medical School. Since 1990, he has been interested in studying the relationship between cerebral laterality and psychological states. His hypothesis is that each hemisphere is capable of manifesting separate personalities, one often more troubled by past traumas. He also studies the nature of conscious experience and its relation to the brain and to psychological function. Dr. Schiffer maintains a private practice of adult psychiatry in Newton, Massachusetts.
