Cognitive Psychology,Neuropsychology

Introduction of my research

I am interested in the cognitive neurological mechanisms that generate emotion and sociality. In addition to employing the basic experimental methods of cognitive psychology, my approaches include neuropsychological methods for studying higher brain dysfunction, functional brain imaging by fMRI, and psychological and physiological methods of investigating autonomic nervous function.
