Ruihan attended the Kinds of Mindreading Graduate Conference on Theory of Mind on 6th February 2021. She gave a talk entitled ‘Do Autistic Adults Spontaneously Reason False and True Beliefs?’. The day-long virtual event was hosted by the Expression, Communication, and the Origins of Meaning (ECOM) research group at the University of Connecticut. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn from like-minded peers and experts, and to familiarise ourselves with the latest advances in mentalizing research.
We’re delighted that Ruihan has been transferred from the degree of MPhil to that of PhD with her study on “Effects of compensation on mentalizing and mental health in the broader autism phenotype”. Congratulations Ruihan!
We’re delighted that Ruihan has been awarded a 3-year Chinese Government Scholarship to support her PhD on “Do individuals with elevated BAP traits compensate more: effects of compensation on mentalizing performance and mental health”. Congratulations Ruihan!
Ruihan presented her first PhD project on ‘The Broader Autism Phenotype, Implicit Mentalizing and Camouflaging: An Eye-tracking Study’ at the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Annual Seminar 2019, and was awarded the Annette Karmiloff-Smith poster prize for the best poster presentation. It was a great opportunity to learn about neurodevelopmental disorders and exchange ideas with experts and like-minded peers.
