About Chaoyi

One part of my research in Social Brain Lab is to understand the neural circuit underlying motion perception (observation of other’s motion), especially the dynamic information flow along the dorsal visual motion pathway to further elucidate the question of a predictive or passive brain. I will make use of intracranial recordings in human patients and collaborate with other lab members using EEG/MEG and fMRI to explore the answers together.

Second part of my research is to understand the neural circuit of empathy, more specifically the neuronal response during observational pain of others, this will be done in rodents with functional ultrasound brain imaging (fUSI) during pain observation, I will mainly dive into the fUSI data to explore the potential neural mechanism of empathy.
