Yee Lee Shing is Professor of Developmental Psychology at Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany. She studies the development of cognitive and brain functioning across the human lifespan, with an emphasis on episodic memory. Using functional neuroimaging, Yee Lee’s research focuses on: (1) the development of associative and strategic components of memory across the lifespan; (2) the effects of environmental factors such as formal school entry and socioeconomic disadvantages on cognitive and brain development; and (3) the mechanisms through which our brain generates predictions with the help of memory.
