Yanchao Bi is a ChangJiang professor in IDG/McGovern Institute for Brain Research and the State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning, at Beijing Normal University. She received her PhD from the Department of Psychology, Harvard University in 2006. Her current work focuses on the study of functional and neural architecture associated with semantic memory and language, using cognitive, neuropsychological and neuroimaging methods. Her work is mainly funded by Ministry of Science and Technology (973 project) and National Science Fundation of China. She serves on the editorial board of Journals Cognition, Cognitive Neuropsychology, Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, and Scientific Reports. She has won various awards, scholarships or recognitions such as “The National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars”, “The National Science Fund for Excellent Young Scholars”, “New Century Excellent Talents in University”, Sackler scholar of psychophysiology, Fulbright scholar, and “rising star” in the Observer by the American psychological association.

Research Interest: the cognitive and neural bases of knowledge representation.

 

Postdoctoral Fellows

 

     Huichao Yang
Email: yanghuichao89@gmail.com
Research Interest: I am interested in the relationship between the action and object. For example, how do they separate from each other, how do they interact with each other and how are they integrated into new and complex concepts. I have two ongoing projects about this: The brain mechanism of action-object integration; The brain mechanism of the role of action in object domain-specific representation.

Research Interest: If both sensory-derived knowledge and imagery are grounded in our sensorimotor systems, where, when, and how do they differ in the brain? Is the "mind's eye" necessary for the representation of sensory-derived knowledge? I'm currently focusing on congenital aphantasics (i.e., people born without voluntary mental imagery), to investigate the above questions.

 

        Ze Fu
Email: zefu1997@gmail.com

Research Interest: I'm interested in how knowledge is created and transmitted in group and societies through language communications. I use computational modeling and neural imaging methods to examine the way that language experience impacts on our understanding of the world.

Research Interest: I study the different stages of object recognition, mainly focusing on the subcortical way.

      Ziyi Xiong

Email: ziyi_xiong@mail.bnu.edu.cn

Research Interest: I'm interested in the mechanism of brain plasticity, and I'm now investigating the interaction between sensorimotor experience and neural representation of body and body actions.
