Ermakova I.V., Doctor of Biological Sciences (2001)

Apparently, this is because psychology is in Russia is considered a subfield of biology. I don't know a lot of Russian, but I can understand that the subject of her "candidate thesis" (master's thesis?) as given on the Russian Wikipedia is related to psychology and neuroscience, more specifically visual perception, not genetics. Her doctoral thesis is about regenerative processes in transplanted neural tissue. Neither of these appear related to genetics. I will change her description to "neuroscientist". --Tweenk (talk) 01:50, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
