余荣军,男,剑桥大学心理学博士, 华南师范大学心理学系教授,博士生导师。


专业领域为神经经济学及社会认知,主要研究兴趣是运用功能核磁共振(fMRI)、脑电(EEG/ERP)等方法探讨决策与社会心理的神经机制(Decision Neuroscience, Social Neuroscience),并利用神经经济学范式和脑成像技术积极探索与决策/情绪相关的临床精神疾病的内在机制,主要研究成瘾,精神分裂,自闭症,焦虑郁闷等情绪障碍。在国际顶级期刊Science,BBS,,PNAS,Journal of Neuroscience等发表论文。


招生要求

招生要求看重具有心理学或者理科背景(如计算机,数学)等,英文阅读写作水平较高,有计算机编程能力。具有良好表达沟通能力,独立学习自主探索的习惯,认真负责之专业态度,投入科研之浓厚热情,头脑冷静能耐挫折和压力,对自己有较高期望和要求,有致于以科研为职业或事业。本实验室专注科研并致力于培养科研人才,希望学生全身心投入学习中,原则上不允许求学期间从事盈利为目的毫无建设性的实习或非学术性工作。实验室完全尊重学生毕业后的职业选择,但坚持研究生阶段以研究为主的大学基本原则,希望研究生三年不仅是为了一纸学位,更重要的是为自己从事更有挑战性的事业搭建好的平台。


请有兴趣的学生主动联系并附简历。实验室积极为优秀努力的学生提供出国访问交流,国内外会议等支持。目前已经有三名硕士生和两名本科实习生获得新加坡国立大学奖学金攻读博士学位,另有硕士毕业生在香港大学等大学攻读博士,实验室博士生毕业在加州理工等科研院校从事博士后等工作。
