Research Interests:

My lab is interested in exploring temporal dynamics in cognitive behaviors and neuronal activities, by employing and combining various time-resolved approaches (behavioral measurements, MEG, EEG, etc.). Recent topics under investigation include: (1) temporal dynamics in visual/auditory processing, perception, attention, learning and memory; (2) Neuronal oscillation mechanism.
