Research Interests:

My lab is interested in exploring temporal dynamics and organizations in various cognitive processes(e.g., perception, attention, complex scene analysis, learning, memory, etc.)and the underlying neuronal mechanisms. We combined cognitive behavioral approaches and brain mapping techniques (e.g., EEG, MEG, fMRI, etc.) to address these questions.
