Chiang-Shan Ray Li MD PhD

Associate Professor of Psychiatry and of Neurobiology

Research Interests

Psychophysics; Neural imaging


Research Summary

Our research focuses on combining psychophysics, neural imaging, and computation to understand how brain works at the systems level. In particular, we are interested in the neural processes of cognitive control and how deficits in these processes may contribute to the pathogenesis of substance use disorders and other relevant psychiatric conditions.
