Runsen Chen

DPhil Student

I am studying for a DPhil under the supervision of Professor Catherine Harmer and Professor Philip Cowen and am a team member of the Psychopharmacology and Emotion Research Laboratory (PERL)

There has been recent interest in NMDA receptors as targets for treatment of major depression disorder and treatment-resistant major depression (TRMD). It’s important to understand more about the effects of NMDA on the neuropsychological mechanisms. I work on a fMRI project, investigating the effect of single administration of Nitrous Oxide and d-cycloserine on emotional processing and memory in healthy volunteers and patients with depression.

Before coming to Oxford, I received a bachelor's degree and a master's degree at the University of Sydney, Australia. I am on the junior editorial board of Bipolar Disorders
