Academic part-time

Executive member of the Executive Committee of neuromodulation , Chinese Medical Doctor Association; Capital Medical University, Department of psychiatry Academic Committee; 2012-2018 Editorial Board, Clinical Neurophysiology; the Chinese National Natural Science Foundation committee review expert.

Main research direction, research content, main achievement

research mainly focused on the mechanisms of higher human brain functions, including consciousness, mental volition, reasoning, and enhancement of cognition in neuromodulation. He has developed a theory of rapid brain dynamics in mental mediation. In the long term, the study of the brain electrical energy and the source potential mapping technology of EEG-ERP to explore the rapid brain function. To the ERP area potential and the EEG area electric energy the brain electricity pattern quantification.
