Brain Neurology Laboratory of Humor and Creativity

Laboratory Introduction

This lab is led by Mr. Hsueh-Chih Chen, and it develops in the direction of eye tracking, ERP experiment, and fMRI research. Two major themes are included: creativity and humor.

Research Equipment

The research equipment includes our department's SR Eyelink 2000 eye-tracking device (located in room 620), Tobii X120 eye-tracking device (located in room 618-1), and Neuroscan's SymAmp2 system (located in room 628). About the fMRI, we collaborate with "Taiwan Mind & Brain Imaging Center" at National Chengchi University or the "Imaging Center for Integrated BODY, MIND AND CULTURE Research" at National Taiwan University.
