报告人：Gal Richter Levin, 以色列生物精神病学学会前任主席
Prof. Richter-Levin got the PhD degree at the Weizmann Institute, Rehovot. He is elected member of the European Dana Alliance for the Brain and ad hoc reviewer of journals: Journal of Neuroscience, European Journal of Neuroscience, Hippocampus, Neuroscience Letters, Psychoneuroendocrinology, Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, Journal of Psychiatry. Prof. Richter-Levin has made major contributions to developing novel translational animal models of mood and anxiety disorders, as well as towards the understanding of the role of emotional and amygdala activation in traumatic memory and depression. The Research in his laboratory focuses on the understanding of the neurobiology of stress-related disorders, particularly Post-traumatic stress disorder and stress-induced depression, and the effects of stressful experiences in early life on cognitive and emotional abilities in adulthood.
