Research interests

Dr He, B.A, MSc, PhD, CPsychol is presently a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London. The main roles for the research project are: to contribute to the development of the CareLoop package, a technology-facilitated self-management system for patients with severe mental illness; to lead and conduct local research responsibilities of a multi-site trial.

 

Dr. He started her academic career at the University of Nottingham with a focus on cognitive and behavioural dysfunctions in relation to individual differences and mental disorders. Her research translates fundamental animal learning theories to human diseases in which associative processes are disordered. For example, in schizophrenia, she and her colleagues find that learning occurs inappropriately, about stimuli that would normally be treated as irrelevant, redundant or in some other way indistinct. In offenders with personality disorders, the disinhibited behaviours are generally described as impulsive, thus a computer-based task was designed to measure excitatory and inhibitory learning performance in this group. The results showed a striking and statistically significant change in the expression of inhibitory learning in a highly controlled procedure in these offenders.

 

Previously, Dr. He was also a Research Fellow at Warwick Medical School. She supported research activity within the West midland region and provided methodological input into research proposals across the Hub and liaise with service users and carers groups to ensure that they actively participate in all stages of research projects, from development of proposal to dissemination of findings.
