Hyeon-Seung ‘Hanson’ Lee

Sixth Year Graduate Student in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program

Hanson’s research aim is to identify what underlying cognitive-affective mechanisms of schizophrenia develop, maintain, and aggravate its symptoms. To investigate the mechanisms, he would like to probe the specific components under neurocognitive impairments, social dysfunction, or self-aberrations of schizophrenia using experimental, neurobiological, and behavioral methodologies. In addition, he is also interested in exploring intact abilities and cognitive potential in individuals with schizophrenia that would give clinical implication or an opportunity to reduce prejudice toward them. He is currently working on projects of VR based social simulation training, 3D body mapping, and Peripersonal space.
