Sze Chai Kwok

Assoc. Prof. of Cognitive Neuroscience at Duke Kunshan University
DKU Faculty

Research Interests


Kwok’s research lies at the intersection between neuroscience, behavior, and psychology. His research team (http://www.kwoklab.org/) studies the neural bases of episodic memory, metacognition, and other related higher cognitive processes in the primate species. Elucidation of such intricate brain/mind/behavior relationships is attained by armamentaria of methods including multimodal neuroimaging, in vivo electrophysiology, neuromodulatory methods, state-of-the-art behavioral paradigms and computational techniques.
