Personal statement
I am a Ph.D. student in Research Center for Brain and Learning Science, State Key Laboratory for Brain and Learning, Beijing Normal University. The human brain is a large, interacting, complex network with nontrivial topological properties. The characterization for the underlying architectures of such a network is an important issue in neuroscience. It can reveal general principles of structural and functional organization in the human brain and increase our understanding of how the human brain is capable of generating and integrating information from multiple sources in real time. So, my main research interest is to reveal the working mechanism of the human brain by using complex brain networks.
