Name and title:

Lingxi Lu, Associate Professor



501 Zonghekeyan Building

Areas of Expertise

cognitive neuroscience in language, speech perception and comprehension, auditory system, speech-in-noise recognition

Current Research

Lu’s laboratory will focus on the exploration of the neural mechanism underlying speech perception and comprehension. The lab will combine electrophysiological recordings, magnetoencephalography, functional brain imaging and psychophysical methods to study the neural networks in both adults and children at different levels.

Education Experience:

Ph.D., Basic Psychology, School of Psychological and Cognitive Sciences, Peking University, China
