Pin-Jane (Nora) Chen

Pin-Jane graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Cognitive/Experimental Psychology. She was a research assistant in the Linguistic Neuroscience Lab in National Taiwan University under Professor Tai-Li Chou, where she used fMRI to investigate the neural correlates of semantic processing in Schizophrenia and in Autism Spectrum Disorder. Now she is a PhD student in the field of social cognitive neuroscience and is interested in preference formation and decision-making for food/beverage both at the behavioral and neural level.

Her favorite food is Braised Pork Rice in Taiwan and Spaghetti alla Carbonara in Italy.
