Welcome to the Leung Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at Stony Brook University!
Our lab focuses on understanding the functional organization of the human prefrontal cortex and its interactions with other cortical and subcortical areas. Recently, we are investigating the role of prefrontal cortex in controlling information processing and movements. We collaborate with colleagues in clinical disciplines to study how abnormality of the prefrontal cortex affects working memory and response control in depression and Parkinson’s disease. We also collaborate with computer scientists to develop and implement new computational methods. We have been using functional MRI, eye tracking and ERP techniques in our research.
Applicants for 2020: Will be admitting a new student pending approval of funding.
