My name is Chun-Yu Lin (林君昱). I'm from Taiwan originally where I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Psychology. There I studied the relationship between emotion and memory, subliminal perception, and implicit memory. I also spent some time in Dr. Bai-Shuan Shyu's lab studying the neural mechanisms of pain in rats using electrophysiological and fMRI methods.

Now I'm working with Dr. Lee Ryan and Dr. Lynn Nadel at the University of Arizona using fMRI and computational modeling to study explicit and implicit memory (priming). I'm also interested in using other techniques to understand how the brain and mind works, such as ERP and MEG.

My ultimate goal is to uncover the mysteries of "consciousness". I am interested in all aspects of this topic: Mind-body problem, subjective experiences, free will, how mind works and how the brain enables it to...

In my leisure time, I enjoy many kinds of sports, such as basketball, soccer, flag football, ultimate Frisbee. My other hobbies include photography, travel, watching movies, listen to Jazz, etc..
