Qing Cai Ph.D.: Associate Professor, Principal Investigator of Laboratory of Language and Development
Dr. Qing Cai obtained her B.S in biotechnology from Jiaotong University, and Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from Lyon University, France. She worked in Laboratory for language, brain and cognition, CNRS during her Ph.D and she then worked in Ghent University, Belgium and Neurospin (INSERM-CEA Cognitive Neuroimaging Unit), France. She is currently associate professor of cognitive psychology at School of
Psychology and Cognitive sciences, East China Normal University.
