Speaker: Professor Tatia Lee, a registered clinical psychologist and a board certified clinical neuropsychologist, is the Director of the State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Sciences,  Chair Professor of Psychology and May Professor in Neuropsychology at HKU. Tatia Lee’s research is at the frontier of neuropsychology and social cognitive affective neuroscience. Marrying the strength of neuroimaging and behavioral methodologies, her research team has been conducting research on understanding the neural underpinnings of higher cognition in prefrontal regions, the very function that defines the human nature of an individual. Her research interests extend to cover normal and abnormal cognition and emotion across the lifespan. With recent advances in understanding neuroplasticity, Tatia Lee and her team have devoted much effort on devising evidence-based interventions for promoting brain health.

This is the fifth episode of the #HKUCovid19 series, a global dialogue with HKU experts online.
