  • Brief Introduction:Dr Xiao Chang is an Associate Young Investigator at Institute of Science and Technology for Brain-Inspired Intelligence (ISTBI), Fudan University. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical and Experimental Neuroscience Programme from University Medical Center, Utrecht University in 2019. Afterwards, Dr. Chang joined the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London as a postdoctoral researcher from 2019 to 2020. Dr Chang aims to apply functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging techniques to psychiatric disorders. Her research uses methods like dynamic connectivity analysis, network analysis to extract features describing macro-scale brain interactions, and to link these neuroimaging features with mental health in adolescents and with pathological symptoms, familial liability for schizophrenia. Dr Chang has published 6 articles in SCI journals.
