Dr. Yanhong Wu is a professor in department of brain and cognitive sciences, and she is also secretary of the party committee of yuanpei college. Her lab mainly focus on Combining qualitative research, behavioral experiments and brain imaging techniques to investigate cognitive characteristics, neural basis of human reflective self-representation and the influence of Chinese Culture and sub-Culture (Chinese ethnic minority groups) on self-processing. They Use fMRI, ERP, and brain lesion studies to explore neural mechanisms of cognitive control, attention and memory She has been rewarded for her excellent teaching including Tang Lixin Scholarship Outstanding Scholar Award in 2017,."
