    Research Interests
    Working Memory, Selective Attention, Perception and high level cognitive function with cognitive neuroscience approaches, include fMRI, ERP, experiments of patients with neural and mental disorders.
    Recent interests: Emotion, Decision Making & Positive psychology(Well Being), Game & Internet addiction. A few experiments have produced some interesting results, and the related manuscripts have been published, such as Resting state functional connectivity predicts impulsivity in economic decision-making; Rejection of unfair offers can be driven by negative emotions-evidence from modified ultimatum games with anonymity; and Decision-making and prepotent response inhibition functions in excessive Internet users.
