The development of imaging and engineering technology to accelerate basic and clinical research in human brain. Specific research interests include the following categories:

  • Multimodal brain imaging using EEG, NIRS and f/MRI
  • Neuromodulation using magnetic or electrical stimulation
  • Biomarker for neurological or neuropsychiatric disorders
  • Neural engineering
