- Hi, I’m Qingqing Yang, an excited psychology master’s student at New York University.
- Using a combinition of Behavioral, eye-tracking, EEG, TMS, and fMRI methods to study human attention, memory, their interplay and neural basis.
- I like computational modeling in general. My current work is based on behavioral modeling for multi-item spatial working memory representations relevant to resource allocation and reference prior strategies, integrated with neural modeling based on fMRI data. Modeling experience could be found on Qingqing’s github
- Now I’m working on my thesis in Dr. Clay E. Curtis lab at NYU, which is a tms, fmri, and eye-tracking integrated spatial working memory study. The proposal would be found in 2022 neuromatch conference
- I also work as a graduate RA in Dr. Catherine Hartley lab at NYU with Dr. Noam Goldway. The project I’m involved is about developmental decision making and computational modeling.
- Graduated from Zhejiang University, China with a balchor’s degree in psychology, where I worked with Dr. Hui Chen.
- I’m an optimistic and energetic being, a self learner, a detail orientated, and patient endeavor.
- I like going to park and museum, watching animate and gaming. My favorite animate right now is JoJo’s bizarre adventure.
- I’m also interested in music. I sing a lot, and I play guitar, piano, and cucurbit flute. On rare occassions, I write songs.
- Language learning is always an intriguing task for me, if not for exams:) I self-studied Japanese from watching animate, and Koran from variety shows.

- At Dr. Catherine Hartley lab, New York University
- Computational modeling for Reinforcement learning decision making task results. Build joint model for 3 orthogonal prospectives of decision making.
- Run fmri scannings
- Perform data analysis for fmri data, such as functional connectivity. (I’m still learning tho)
- Write easy scripts to improve efficiency of research routines occasionally, like python scripts for filter, copy and paste datafiles.
