Tae-Ho Lee is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Virginia Tech. He received his PhD in Brain Cognitive Science in the Department of Psychology from the University of Southern California and M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Korea University. His research focuses on 1) what and how neural developments occur during the adolescence with the consideration of significant others’ neural level influence in the brain and 2) how affective system in the brain changes as children get developed.
  • Dyadic neural concordance of family and its impact on the adolescent emotional development
  • Arousal-age interaction on visual perception and memory encoding: ABC and GANE model for emotional arousal
