Principal Investigators

  • Jia Liu, Ph.D

    Dr. Jia Liu is a Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience and Department Head of Psychology at Beijing Normal University. He received his PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2002, with a major in cognitive neuroscience. He is responsible for the overall design and management of the project. Dr. Jia Liu has more than two decades involvement in mapping structure and function of the human brain cerebral cortex. His research over the past decade has focused increasingly on:

    • Neural basis of object/face recognition and its plasticity
    • Genetic imaging and hereditary basis of object/face recognition
    • Neural basis of interindividual differences in human behavior and cognition
  • Zonglei Zhen, Ph.D

    Zonglei Zhen is an Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Beijing Normal University. He received his PhD from Institute of Automation Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2007, with a major in computer science. He is responsible for the construction of brain activity atlas and the development of tools. His research over the past decade has focused increasingly on:

    • Developing new approaches and software to detect brain activation and localize fROI
    • Characterizing intersubject variability of brain activity on voxel and regional level
    • Anatomical and genetic basis of brain activity and functional localization
