Li-Ang Chang is a PhD student at CREED under the supervision of Jan Engelmann. Previously, Li-Ang acquired his BSc in Biology from the Department of Life Science at Tunghai University. Under the supervision of Professor Chi-Hung Juan he then completed his MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at National Central University in Taiwan. As a research assistant at Taipei Medical University he explored the topic of decision-making in social contexts. Given his background in both Biology and Psychology he is interested in Social Neuroscience. In particular, he is fascinated by individual differences in emotional responses, and how such different emotions affect human decision-making in social contexts related to political issues and groups. He is now working with Jan to delve into the neural underpinnings of social decision-making processes, focusing on the role of the temporoparietal junction (TPJ).
