Ph.D Students

Po-Heng Chen  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
As human beings, we use language effortlessly in life despite its complexity. My research interests focus on cognitive and neural mechanisms of language processing and how these mechanisms could be affected by individual variations and healthy aging.

Jia-Min Bai  

Department of Psychology National Taiwan University
As a speech-language pathologist, I am very interested in the neural mechanisms of language processing, especially in individuals with language impairments.

Master Students

Yi Chun Ko  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
I'm broadly interested in psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics, specifically in referential resolution, lexical/referential ambiguity and the role of working memory in language processing. My current project focuses on the underlying mechanisms of referential ambiguity. We investigate this by increasing the difficulty in referential resolution and observing the outcome of the Nref effect, an ERP effect elicited by referentially ambiguous expressions.

Co-advised by Dr. Li-ping Chang

Neurolinguistics is my primary research approach at present. My current research topic focuses on how the brain processes Chinese reflexive. Other linguistics fields, such as language acquisition, sociolinguistics, and contrastive analysis, are also appealing to me.

Yun-Han Hsu  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
My academic interest is perception of pronunciation variants. I am currently working on an ERP study on perception of onset sibilant variants in Taiwan Mandarin.

Undergraduate Students

Wei-Hung Lin  

Department of Psychology National Taiwan University
I am an intern in BLP lab. I want to understand the mechanism of language processing with electrophysiology and psychological knowledge. Right now I am interested in the impact of emotion on word processing.

Ting-Fei Chu  

Department of Occupational Therapy National Taiwan University
Since I am interested in neuroscience and psychology, I have applied Neurobiology and Cognitive Science Program before. This semester, I engage in thematic study in Dr.Lee's lab, and now I am dedicated in emotional language prediction project.

Research Assistant

Yun Ingrid Chuang  

Graduate Institute of Linguistics National Taiwan University
I completed my M.A. in linguistics at BLP lab, NTU, with Neurobiology and Cognitive Science Program certificate. I majored in neurolinguistics and my thesis project focused on how familial sinistrality modulates syntactic, semantic, and thematic processing and how these processings share similar cognitive-neural underpinnings. My current research is about the phrasal ambiguity processing in Taiwan Mandarin, measured by MEG, and also using EEG to research how it's affected by aging.
