Prof. Tang

A neuroscientist and psychologist as well as a long-term practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, meditation, Tai Chi, martial arts and I Ching.

His basic research focuses on how brain processes information, makes decision and drives behavior associated with health and disease. For example, how experiences (learning/training or culture) affect the brain processing and reshape the brain networks that support paying attention, learning, emotional regulation, cognitive control, behavior/habit change, decision making and relationship.

His translational research focuses on inventing, developing and applying new preventive intervention techniques (e.g, mindfulness meditation, physical exercise,computerized program) for behavioral problems and mental disorders associate with deficits in attention, emotion, self-awareness and self-control (e.g. stress, mood disorders, addiction, PTSD and TBI).
