Wang Neuroscience Lab


Our lab exploits the unique opportunities provided by intracranial electrical recordings during neurosurgical procedures. Using single-neuron recording from epileptic patients implanted with depth electrodes and intra-op recording from DBS patients, we investigate neural mechanisms of saliency, attention, face processing and consciousness. We also combine multimodal neuroscience approaches, including functional neuroimaging, intracranial and scalp EEG, eye tracking and computational modeling. We study both healthy individuals and neurological populations such as people with autism and stroke patients.

Team Members

We are looking for motivated postdocs; visiting scholars and students are also welcome.


We look for participants in experiments!

We conduct both eye tracking and fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) experiments to study visual attention and social perception. If you are interested in participating in our research, please contact Runnan. Thank you!
