Hong Li, Ph.D.

Principal Investigator, Shenzhen Institute of Ne

Professor Li received Ph.D degree in 1997 at Beijing Normal University. His research focuses on cognitive neuroscience, cognitive development, and emotion. Professor Li has been PI of a number of major national research projects, including 6 projects supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), 3 projects supported by National Social Science Foundation, 1 project supported by the Ministry of Health, and 1 project supported by the Ministry of Health. Professor Li conducts studies of the neural and cognitive basis on inductive reasoning, interaction of emotion and cognition, and cognitive development of children. He has published more than 200 research articles in high-quality international journals such as Psychological Science, Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Human Brain Mapping, NeuroImage, Neuropsychologia, Biological Psychology, Neuroscience, psychophysiology, Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, Cognitive development etc. Professor Li was a Vice-President of the Chinese Psychological Society.
