One day, Carly, one of Sleevemore's subjects, recruits an individual named Raven, whom she believes to be psychic. Marvin informs Sleevemore, Raven received a vision during her high school's volleyball tournament, leading their team to losing the game, and embarrassing Raven in the process. Sleevemore places Raven in his Sleevemore Cerebral Oscillator, an invention created to measure a persons psychic abilities. Sleevemore and his other subjects try to test Raven on abilities, other than her clairvoyance, but come to no luck. As he is ready to give up, Raven receives a vision, leading to a reaction from the Oscillator. She immediately warns Dr. Sleevemore to take three steps backwards, and as he does, a light falls, where he once stood. Sleevemore thanks Raven for keeping him from harm, and records his finding. As Raven decides to return to the centre, Sleevemore fetches his popcorn, which is being warmed by another subject, Sparky, who has pyrokinetic abilities.

When Raven decides to leave, he lets Raven know, she is always welcome, should she want to return.
Two years pass, and Raven begins receiving bizarre, nonsensical visions. Having got knowledge of this, with his psychic abilities, he arrives in the Baxter House, to help her solve the problem. He sets up the Sleevemore Mobile Psychic Oscillator, onto an already nervous Raven, who is further pushed on the edge, after Dr. Sleevemore makes a joke regarding the machine harming her. While the machine is being set up, Chelsea attempts to sell her homemade shampoo product to Dr. Sleevemore, who make a remark about the lack of luster in his hair. He connects his machine to a screen, and asks various questions to Raven, regarding how her psychic abilities have affected her day-to-day-life. As Raven recalls all the negative memories her visions have put her through, which are projected for everyone else to see, Sleevemore offers Raven the chance to turn off her visions, permanently. When Raven reflects on the offer, she remembers the trouble her visions have given he, including an incident, in which her face had swollen, due to eating mushrooms. Dr. Sleevemore realizes Raven's issue, originate from the shampoo, Chelsea was attempting to sell him earlier, as they contain mushrooms, and are the cause of her 'jacked-up visions'. When Raven recalls the good memories she had, she changes her mind, regarding the choice to remove her visions, just as Sleevemore attempts to turn them off. She presses multiple buttons in order to stop the machine, and Dr. Sleevemore ejects her from the machine, causing her to fly out of the seat. Raven questions Sleevemore over whether the machine worked, but learns it didn't, meaning, she retained her powers.
