Yunlong Huang is presently a PhD candidate at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. He has been trained in Linguistics since undergraduate and is now majoring in Linguistics and Applied Linguistics.
His research interests include the cognitive mechanism and neural basis of sentence comprehension, and computational cognitive modeling of language understanding. Presently, he is interested in the brain’s processing of both semantic and syntactic information, their interplay with each other and with some more general cognitive systems such as memory in Chinese sentence comprehension, and establishing computational cognitive models of Chinese semantic and syntactic information processing. He mainly uses ERP and fMRI techniques to explore the language information processing of normal human participants.
