BBCS (MSc 2)
Dr. M. Olmstead
Hello! My name is Madison Mailhiot and I am currently in the second year of my MSc in the Brain, Behaviour, and Cognitive Sciences (BBCS) program at Queen's. I also did my BSc in Psychology within the department and had the privilege of working with Dr. Mary Olmstead in my third and fourth year as I was (and still am!) very interested in drug addiction research. For my undergraduate thesis, I looked at the dopaminergic differences in morphine reward based on pain state in a pre-clinical model. I plan to continue with this work in my Master's thesis, as opiate addiction is something that I find really interesting. During my time as an undergraduate, I was also was fortunate enough to complete a special directed reading course with Ron Shore (School of Kinesiology and Health Studies) looking at the vulnerability to addiction from a biological, psychological, and sociological perspective.
Aside from academics, I have been involved with a number of programs including Brain Reach, Brain Bee, Brain Awareness Day, Got Your Back Week, Jack.Org, and the Queen's Equestrian Team, among others. If you have any questions regarding things like how to get into graduate school, advice for undergraduate courses, special directed courses, finding supervisors, getting involved in a lab, completing an undergraduate thesis, etc, please feel free to contact me! I'm more than happy to offer any advice I can and put you in touch with people who may be better suited to answer your questions if necessary. I look forward to hearing from you!
