Biography I am currently a professor in the Graduate Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience (ICN) of National Central University in Taiwan. The ICN, of which I am one of the founders, was established in September of 2003, as Taiwan’s first graduate institute that focuses on human behaviors and neural mechanisms. The aim of the institute is to cultivate potential researchers as well as fostering the studies of cognitive neuroscience and brain science. The ultimate goal of strengthening Taiwan’s academic community in the interpretation of human mental operations and applying study results to educational studies, human factors ergonomics and crime prevention are also the intended objectives of ICN. My research interests include: neural mechanism of visual cognition, visual attention and oculomotor systems, neural mechanisms of the inhibitory control, application of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS) in Cognitive Neuroscience and number comprehension and processing. I developed a strong passion for research and carrying out experiments early on during my educational training. Today, my role in the ICN is well-distributed to research and teaching concurrently. I also submit papers to internationally-renowned scientific journals (PNAS, Journal of Neuroscience and Cerebral Cortex, Neuroimaging and Human Brain Mapping, to name a few) quite a few times annually.
