2月28日 Akaysha Tang: EEG based brain imaging for investigating learning in the real world(数据科学与工程系列学术报告)


报告人简介:

Akaysha Tang, Ph.D. Director, Laboratory of Neuroscience forEducation Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong.Afterserving as the Program Director for the Cognitive Neuroscience Program(2012-2014) and for the China Program (2014-2016) at the United States NationalScience Foundation, Prof. Tang took the position of an inaugural director forthe newly established Laboratory of Neuroscience for Education (NfE Lab,NfE.edu.hku.hk) at the Faculty of Education, the University of Hong Kong (HKU).The vision of the NfE Lab is to innovate education by leveraging cutting edgeneuroscience findings and neuro-technology. The NfE Lab grounds its basicneuroscienceresearch in the context of actual challenges faced by students, parents,teachers, and policy makers---and works to connect the laboratories with theclassrooms and homes where real world learning takes place. Its missions are(1) to enhance learning capacity, (2) to improve teaching effectiveness, and(3) to inform policy. Prof. Tang's research deals with (a) enhancement ofcognitive, social, emotional, and neural development in animal models and itstranslation to human development with focus on the role of early experience ofstress and maternal influence; (b) development of high- density EEG based brainimaging to enable the study of a learning brain in children and elderlyindividuals as well as patient populations in the real world context.
