Chie is a cognitive & behavioural neuroscientist and a postdoctoral reserach fellow at University of Birmingham.


    Research Interests

Chie has been fascinated with brain mechanisms and the modelling from both spatial and temporal aspects. Her main reserach interests encompass various perspectives of vision science and motor control, in particular, understanding how humans combine different sensory informaiton to perceive the 3D world and respond to the world. Her interests have also expanded to applied scientific fields such as virtual reality and brain-machine interface in collaboration with her multidisciplinary background.
