Fanlu Jia, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Shenzhen Institute of Neuroscience

Dr. Jia received her Ph.D. degree from the University of Hong Kong in 2016. Her recent work utilizes functional neuroimaging techniques to investigate the neural developmental patterns of Chinese language; identify the abnormalities of brain activation and cortical structures in neural development of Chinese language; and devise the neuropathological and genetic basis of neural development underlying Chinese language processes.
