Brief Bio

Now I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. I am working at the Emotion Lab with Dr. Andreas Olsson. I hold a PhD in Education from the East China Normal University, China (supervisor: Professor Yi Hu) and a second PhD in Psychological Science and Education from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium (supervisor: Professor Philippe Peigneux).


My research interests are in the areas of human social interactions. More specifically, my research focuses on how brain-to-brain coupling across individuals tracks (and underlies) cooperation, decision-making, learning, and other high-level social cognition. I use behavioral, electrophysiological (EEG, GSR), neuroimaging (fNIRS, MEG), and neuro-modulation (tACS) methods, combined with second-person neuroscience approach, to investigate the neural mechanisms that mediate human social cognition.


News
  • [2020/03/26] Just out! New review paper collaborated with Dr. Xiaojun Cheng: Two-person approaches to studying social interaction in psychiatry: Uses and clinical relevance, published in Frontiers in Psychiatry.

  • [2020/03/21] I presented my recent work in a fNIRS journal club run by Dr. Xu Cui. Presentation can be downloaded here https://alivelearn.net/?p=2467.

  • [2020/02/15] Two papers accepted in NeuroImage: (1) Instructor-learner brain coupling discriminates betweeen instructional approaches and predicts learning; (2) The averaged inter- brain coherence between the audience and a violinist predicts the popularity of violin performance.

  • [2019/10/28] New work out in Brain Topography - Applications of functional near-infrared spectroscopy in fatigue, sleep deprivation, and social cognition. This is my first review paper!

  • [2019/09/27] New paper accpeted by Frontiers in Neuroscience -   Coordination elicits synchronous brain activity between co-actors: Frequency ratio matters. Congrats to Dr. Xiaojun Cheng!

  • [2019/08/20] Our new work 'Learning desire is predicted by similar neural processing of naturalistic educational materials' published in eNeuro was just featured on neuroscience news. See more details here.

  • [2019/07/22] Just accepted a postdoctoral offer from the Emotion Lab, Karolinska Institutet. Looking forward to my new journey in Sweden.

  • [2019/05/13] Just obtained double PhD from East China Normal University (China, supervisor: Prof. Yi Hu) and Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium, supervisor: Prof. Philippe Peigneux). My doctoral dissertation titled "Instructor-learner brain synchronization tracks interactive learning: Identification, modulation, and causation" won the Excellent Thesis! Well done, Dr. Pan :-)

  • [2018/09/28] New paper out in Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging! In this work, we investigated the interpersonal brain synchronization during psychological counseling and its relationship with working alliance. Amazing!

  • [2018/08/03] New paper out in NeuroImage! You can find it in the Research section - "Interpersonal synchronization of inferior frontal cortices tracks social interactive learning of a song".

  • [2017/12/23] New paper out in Biological Psychology. We investigated the inter-brain synchrony and cooperation context in ineractive decision making.

  • [2017/10/14] New paper out in Social Cognitive & Affective Neuroscience. In this paper, we investigated how brain-to-brain synchronization predicted mutual prosociality.

  • [2017/09/21] I have arrived at Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB, Belgium) as a joint PhD student. My new boss and collegues are very nice!

  • [2017/07/11]   New paper out in Brain and Cognition. We studied the neural dynamics in superior mnemonists. We found that P2 and theta power during encoding predict retrieval of digit memory in world-class superior mnemonists.

  • [2017/02/16] New paper out in Memory! We investigated the behavioral characteristics and memory skills in the Championship of World Memory Competition 2010 & 2011 - Feng Wang.

  • [2016/12/14] I have just uploaded my curriculum vitae (CV). Please download it if you are interested in!

  • [2016/09/24] Our work titled 'Cooperation in lovers: An fNIRS-based hyperscanning study' is just accpeted by Human Brain Mapping! Cheers!

  • [2016/07/22] I share some codes in the section [Resource]. Enjoy yourself :)

  • [2016/07/22] I am going to Japan for the 31st International Congress of Psychology! See you tomorrow!

  • [2016/01/23] You are wanted :) Our are recruiting subjects for our new experiment!

  • [2016/01/22] My personal homepage is online. Hello, World!
