Our group (founded in 2011) is affiliated with the State Key Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning, Beijing Normal University, China. Our research is focused on individual variability in the human brain at the systems level. We primarily employ multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), such as structural MRI, diffusion MRI, and resting-state functional MRI.

Specifically, our research includes two divisions. The first division is dedicated to computational methodology and platform development for post-processing, analyzing, and evaluating structural and diffusion MRI data. This line of investigation aims to improve quantification of the inter-individual variability in various measures for the human brain (e.g., gray matter morphometry, white matter connectivity/networks, and intrinsic functional activity). The second division explores the genetic basis and behavioral consequence of inter-individual human brain variability. This line of research involves relating genetic and behavioral variation as well as brain diseases/disorders with inter-subject differences in brain measures.

Our work is funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology, National Natural Science Foundation of China, Ministry of Education, and Beijing Municipal Science & Technology Commission.
