The Hwang lab conducts research to understand the neural mechanisms of executive functions and its developmental process during childhood and adolescence. Specifically, we are interested in discovering the neural architecture, processes, dynamics, and developmental trajectory that allow brain networks to select, inhibit, transfer, and integrate information. Together, these mechanisms support many important mental functions during typical and atypical development, such as attention, working memory, response selection and inhibition. We address our research questions with a comprehensive human neuroscience approach, combining multimodal research methodologies, including fMRI, EEG, TMS, lesion studies, eye tracking and behavioral testing.
