Various excellent talks scheduled for this meeting, part of the Cambridge-Fudan Cognitive Neuroscience Seminar, that aims to facilitate research collaborations between Fudan University and the University of Cambridge.


Chair – Valerie Voon – Senior Principal Investigator & MRC Senior Clinical Fellow, University of Cambridge

Xiao Xiao – Associate Professor at Fudan University

Title – Perceptual causality in the brain: from sensory perception to emotion and cognition

Biography Dr. Xiao Xiao is an Associate Professor/Principal Investigator at Fudan University, Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence (ISTBI). After receiving a B.S. in Biological Engineering at Xi’an Jiaotong University, Dr. Xiao performed her Ph.D. studies with Dr. Yuqiu Zhang and Dr. Zhiqi Zhao at Fudan University, Institute of Neurobiology. Dr. Xiao’s thesis work focused on the circuitry and molecular mechanisms that mediate aversive behavior to pain, which was supported by the Excellent Doctor Project Foundation of the Ministry of Education in China. She went on to do a postdoc fellowship with Dr. Anthony Koleske and Dr. Michael Higley at Yale University School of Medicine, where she identified molecular pathology of synapse stabilization and neural circuit plasticity. Dr. Xiao is the recipient of numerous awards including the Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK) Tomorrow’s Star Award, American Heart Association Postdoc Fellowship, Rising-Star Project, etc. By combining cognitive behavioral testing, an array of electrophysiological and optical methods in brain slices and in vivo, and machine-learning analysis, she is interested in exploring neural circuit and molecular mechanism of emotional and cognitive disorders.

Amy Milton – Senior Lecturer at University of Cambridge, Ferreras-Willetts Fellow in Neuroscience and Praelector, Downing College, Cambridge

Title: Challenges and opportunities in exploiting memory reconsolidation to treat addiction

Biography Dr Amy Milton is a University Senior Lecturer at the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge, and the Ferreras-Willetts Fellow in Neuroscience at Downing College, University of Cambridge. Her research focuses on memory reconsolidation, from a basic science perspective and its potential translation into a novel form of treatment for mental health disorders. She received her MA after specialising in Natural Sciences (Neuroscience) at the University of Cambridge, and studied for her Ph.D. in Behavioural Neuroscience (supervised by Professor Barry Everitt) at the (then) Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Cambridge.
