PhD (Neuroscience), National Yang-Ming University, Taiwan, 2014

Research Interests

Research interests: I investigated the functional role of Chinese orthographic structure in character recognition and its psychological and neural underpinnings (via MEG) in my doctoral dissertation. I also study the domain generality of syntactic building mechanisms for numerical and linguistic materials across Chinese and French speakers (via fMRI). Currently, I focused on establishing predictors of functional connectivity in the brain on individual differences in reading and listening comprehension.
