About Lab

Prof. Shihui Han and the Culture and Social Cognitive Neuroscience lab study cultural and genetic influences on psychological and neural mechanisms underlying social cognition and social behavior by integrating social/cultural psychology and brain imaging such as fMRI/EEG/MEG. Their research aims to clarify how the brain represents self-related information (self-referential processing), how the brain understands and shares others’ emotion (empathy), and how the brain processes death-related information and the related effects on other social cognitive/affective processes.
