Research Interests:
Systematic study of psychotic disorders, neurological disorders, and at-risk groups of mentally ill individuals using multiple disciplinary approaches (including fMRI, ERP, behaviorual genetics, neuropsychological testing). Target groups include but are not limited to schizophrenia spectrum disorders, depression, bipolar disorders, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, frontal lobe lesions patients
Endophenotype study
Application of social cognitive neuroscience (social psychology, cognitive sciences, neuropsychology) to the development of clinical assessment and intervention for patients with cognitive impairments (e.g., social cognition training in schizophrenia and schizotypy)
Developmental psychopathology
Measurement issues in clinical practice (e.g., development and validation of ecological valid test of neuropsychological performance, and articulating the laboratory-based test results to everyday life performance)
Coping and quality of life of patients with neurological and cognitive disorders
