Research Interests

I'm interested in the following question: How does the brain process faces, objects and words? More specifically - What are the similar characteristics of faces and Chinese characters processing? 

The goal of my PhD project is through a cross-cultural functional magnetic resonance imaging training study for the expertise and non-expertise stimuli to reveal the neural mechanisms of future event predictions in the human brain and give evidences of the multiple-level hierarchical model of predictive functions.
