Dr Shao, Zhengxi 邵正羲
Dr. Robin Shao is primarily interested in the behavioural and neural processes of reinforcementbased risky decision making in both individual and social contexts, and how knowledge of such processes may help understand behavioural addictions such as pathological gambling and internet gaming addiction, as well as how patients with mood disorders such as major depressive disorder may also have compromised functions in making risky decisions. He use mostly functional magnetic resonance imaging technique to investigate neural processes both during task and at resting-state, as well as incorporating other imaging tools such as voxelbased morphometry and diffusion tensor imaging. His research also covers social affective processing and how individuals with dysfunctional affective processing system such as those with high psychopathy trait may exhibit differential behavioural and neural processes in a social affective context.
