Signal and Information Processing.
Using the theory and methods of information and computer science, combined with cognitive neuroscience, I focused on approaches and analysis of brain MRI data (MRI、fMRI and DTI). Through these studies, we will investigate the interrelation of brain morphometry based on the view of network, to provide the crucial foundation about the relationship between brain structure aging effect (neural mechanism) and cognitive aging effect (cognitive mechanism).
