Research Interests

Towards an integrated understanding of “Mind-Brain-Body” interactions, our lab focuses on various cognitive functions by using multiple research methods.

  • Social and Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

    Functional brain imaging and neuropsychological studies of emotional processing, theory of mind, facial perception, and social interactions.

  • Clinical Psychophysiology, Neuropsychiatry, and Autonomic Neuroscience

    Basic neural mechanisms of emotion and autonomic activities, neural specificities in anxiety, depression, and autonomic disorders, cognitive deficits in autism spectrum disorders, and the sense of agency in schizophrenia.

  • Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Neurology

    Functional brain imaging and neuropsychological studies of the frontal lobe and higher-order cognitive functions, including episodic memory encoding and retrieval, prospective memory, episodic future thinking, false memory, and monitoring. Neurological studies of cognitive deficits following neurodegenerative diseases associated with proteinopathy.
