Personal Statement
I am interested in understanding the neural representation during episodic memory encoding, maintenance, and retrieval and its relationship with behavior performance. I am particularly interested in examining the nature of neural representations and transformation of neural representations across different memory stages. Besides, I am also interested in investigating the difference between the single-item memory and sequential memory and the role of neural oscillations during the memory processing. As a PhD candidate in the Center for Brain and Cognitive Science, my current work is focused on examining dynamic changes of item-specific representations during working memory maintenance by using the intracranial EEG (iEEG) recording.
