PhD candidate in Kinesiology and Health Sciences, York University, Canada

I am a PhD candidate in School of Kinesiology and Health Science at York University, Canada.

My research focuses on the neural mechanisms for visuospatial coding of targets for movements. In particular, I investigate the brain regions involved in egocentric (self-centered) and allocentric (world-centered) processing of target location for reaching and saccade using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The result of my research has shown that different brain areas were used for egocentric and allocentric encoding of remembered target location for reaching, which might provide clinical applicattions for patients with brain damage.
