Since 2015 Dr. Benjamin Becker is working as full-time National and Sichuan Provincial Thousand Talent awarded Professor at the UESTC and head of the Neurotherapy & Social Cognition and Affective Neuroscience ( Lab. He received his Master and PhD Degrees in Psychology at the Universities of Trier and Duesseldorf in Germany. During his postdoctoral studies at the Departments of Psychiatry in Cologne and Bonn (Germany) his research employed advanced neuroimaging to explore the emotional circuits of the human brain in healthy subjects and determine dysregulations of these circuits in patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. His current projects aim at translating these findings to enhance emotional control in healthy subjects with the ultimate aim to improve the treatment of mental disorders such as anxiety and addiction. To this end his team evaluates novel pharmacological neuroenhancers and technology-based approaches such as real-time functional imaging-based neurofeedback. Dr. Becker’s research is supported by competitive research grants from German and Chinese funding agencies. He has published over 100 scientific publications, including book chapters as well as publications in high-ranking international peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Brain, The American Journal of Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics and Biological Psychiatry.
