Journal Club

To share the experiences and improve the ability of reading and writing papers as well as keep timely updates on the progess in this field, we initiative the journal club (JC) in LFCD. During every JC event, there is a single person assigned as the Speaker who will direct the reading and discussing the paper of interests. These papers are recommended by LFCD members who feel the importance of these papers to the research of most members. Please visit details of these events. [2011], [2012], [2013], [2014], ...


Every year, LFCD members attend several international conferences such as the annal meetings of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM), the Society of Neuroscience (SfN), the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), etc. We share our findings and exchange research ideas with international researchers.

Lab Meeting

The LFCD lab meeting regularly happens in every Friday afternoon (2:00PM - 5:00PM) while the journal club could be more flexible in time slots. The place where the group meeting goes is the room 228 in Southern Building, Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. In these meetings, LFCD members or guests from other institues or universities will present the main findings and progresses of their projects and get feedbacks and comments from other people who are willing to contribute and discuss the different aspects of these projects.

LFCD Courses

The leader of LFCD, Prof. Xi-Nian Zuo, offers several courses to the lab members as well as some guests from other institutes and universities every year. These courses are mainly built upon his experiences of predoctoral and posdoctoral training, and aim to train the lab members from multiple disciplines (psychology, physics, mathematics and statistics, medicine, engineering, computer sciences, etc) to get into the brain sciences.
