Research Interests

  • The Brain Mapping Laboratory aims at the development of pioneer approaches for extracting significant information from brain signals to understand the function and structure of the human brain. Our major goals include:
  • Developing medical image processing techniques for manipulating, morphologically measuring, statistically inferring, and visualizing brain structures of normal subjects and patients.
  • Developing signal processing and electromagnetic mapping technologies for functional imaging of human brains.
  • Imaging cognitive/emotional information processing and constructing the model of emotion regulation in healthy and diseased brains
  • Developing brain informatics and data mining techniques for exploring structure-function association in brain image-signal database.
