Jin Fan
Position: Professor
Campus Affiliation: Queens College
Phone: 718-997-4139
Degrees/Diplomas: Ph.D., New York University
Research Interests: fMRI, attentional networks
Training Area: Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience | Clinical Psychology at Queens College

Research Focus: Cognitive Neuroscience

Dr. Fan’s research focuses on human attentional processes conceptualized as a system of anatomical areas forming specialized networks. Through independent research and collaboration, he has conducted behavioral, developmental, and patient-based studies using functional magnetic resonance imaging, event related potentials, genetics, and computational modeling to investigate the anatomy, circuitry, pathology, and development of attentional networks. Dr. Fan has expertise in cognitive neuroscience, specifically various neuroimaging methods.

Research Interests:
Current research is focused on understanding the mechanisms of brain circuits underlying cognitive functions, such as attention and emotion, in normal and patient populations by employing behavioral, developmental, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), event related potentials (ERP), computational modeling, and genetics methods.
