Liang-Tien (Frank) Hsieh, Post Doctoral Fellow
Driven by the motivation to improve my poor memory, I am interested in studying how human encode and retrieve information and how our brains make this happen. In pursuit of answering these questions, I measure people's brain activity while they are performing memory tasks by using event-related potentials (ERP) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Currently I am involved in a research project that aims to delineate the functional contributions of prefrontal cortex (PFC) and medial temporal lobes (MTL) to temporal context memory. We will use fMRI and electroencephalogram (EEG) to investigate the contributions of different PFC and MTL subregions to temporal memory.
Outside of the lab, I enjoy playing baseball/basketball, and writing calligraphy. Of course, I also enjoy biking on/off campus in Davis!
