研究方向:生物心理学(Biological Psychology), 基因成像学(Genetic neuroimaging), 压力与抑郁症(Stress&Depression disorders)

李世佳博士:华东师范大学心理与认知科学学院明园晨晖学者,师资博士后。毕业于华东师范大学脑功能基因组学重点实验室,获分子神经生物学研究生学位,其后获国家留学基金委授予的国家公派博士研究生奖学金,赴德国奥尔登堡大学心理学院读博,研究领域为急性压力对人类情绪性记忆提取的行为学和基因成像学分析。2013年受邀到隶属于德国马格德堡大学医学院及莱布尼茨神经生物学研究所的临床情绪神经成像实验室(CANLAB)进行博士后工作,进行和抑郁症相关的行为学和大脑功能连接研究直到2015年8月回国。目前的研究重点是1) 健康人群和情绪性疾病人群在急性压力情况下的不同决策行为和对认知灵活性的影响,以及生物因素(如基因多态性)和心理因素(如人格)对大脑功能的影响;2)抑郁症病人快感缺失的脑机理和基因成像学研究。


Dr. rer. nat. Shijia Li was graduated in East China Normal University in 2009, with a MSc. degree in Molecular Neurobiology. After graduation, she was awarded 4 years PhD scholarship from Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC) and went to Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg in German, joined the Biological Psychology Team of Prof. Dr. Christiane M. Thiel and started working on the Human cognitive behavior and fMRI study. Her main interest during PhD was how acute stress influence emotional facial memory retrieval, and identified the ADRA2B deletion was prone to the stress and emotion interaction.


In September 2013, Dr. Li started working in the team of Prof. Dr. Martin Walter - The Clinical Affective Neuroimaging Laboratory (CANLAB) of Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg and the Leibniz Institution for Neurobiology, as a PhD assistant and then a Postdoc. During the time, her focus was the attention regulation related functional connectivity in healthy subjects and depression patients. She was especially interested in the biological factors (such as Gene polymorphism) and the psychological factors (such as Personality) interaction.


Dr. Li started working as the Mingyuan Chenhui Scholar (Senior Lecturer) in the School of Psychology and Cognitive Science, East China Normal University in Shanghai, China, since September 2015. Her current topic is how individual differences (both biological and psychological factors) and social stress influencing the perception of unfairness and cognitive flexibility, as well as clinical applications.
