Arbeitsbereich Neural Dynamics of Visual Cognition
Visiting PhD student
Room Jk 24/221e
I am a PhD student in the Department of Psychology at National Taiwan University. In October 2021 I joined the lab as a visiting student, working on a one-year project investigating how the spatiotemporal representations of distances and surface normals are integrated into the 3D scene information under spatial perception.
My research focuses on statistical machine learning for neural decoding. For the past few years, I have carried out machine learning algorithms on spatiotemporal neural activities to investigate the representational dynamics underlying object recognition and attentional modulation.

General research interests
I am generally curious about how various visual information is spatiotemporally perceived, integrated, and transformed in the human brain. During my PhD, my research focuses on spatiotemporal profiles of neural representations underlying object recognition and attentional modulation. Specifically, I examined the representational similarity and difference between face and Chinese character recognition through multivariate pattern analysis on neural patterns for MEG and fMRI responses. Furthermore, I conducted a MEG-fMRI fusion study to understand how top-down attention modulates the neural dynamics of object selectivity.
I currently investigate how the spatiotemporal representations of distance and orientation are integrated into the 3D scene information under spatial perception. The project is funded by MOST (Ministry of Science and Technology in Taiwan) and DAAD until September 2022.
