Dr. Haiyan Geng is a professor at the Department of Psychology, Peking University. She got Ph. D in 1998 at Peking University. Her current research is focused on Cognitive and neural mechanisms of conscious and unconscious processes. She also studies false memory and its underlying neural mechanisms. She’s in charge of four projects supported by National Natural Science Foundations of China.
