Founded in 2003 and directed by Professor Daisy Hung, the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at the National Central University is an interdisciplinary graduate institute devoted to promote excellent research in cognitive and brain science.
Research at the Institute mainly focuses on several topics including: Neurolinguistics, Psycholinguistics, Visual Attention, Human Memory and Neuropsychology, Action Control, Auditory Perception, as well as Emotion. The Institute has very active collaborations with prestigious Institutes and Universities internationally.
Innovative neuroimaging techniques including event-related potential (ERP), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), eye movements tracking system, motion capture system, innerEar probe tube microphone, are housed in our various laboratories. Several researchers also use Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and Magnetoencephalography(MEG) in the National Yang-Ming University and Academica Sinica to investigate critical issues in brain science.
