Jong-Hwan Lee (이종환), Ph.D.


My longstanding research interests have been in the investigation of hidden information underlying sensory signals and development of efficient methods for accurate analysis of this information. My recent research has focused on the application of the artificial neural networks and/or machine learning algorithms to the neuroimaging data, such as structural MRI (sMRI), functional MRI (fMRI), and electroencephalography (EEG). In our lab, we have been working on the studies/projects such as (i) a novel application of independent vector analysis and (ii) an iterative approach of dual-regression with sparse constraints on spatial patterns of neuronal activations applying to group fMRI data processing, (iii) automated classification of thought processes measured via fMRI data, (iv) analysis of simultaneous EEG-fMRI methods and their applications to sleep-onset/epileptic-foci detection and to denoising of cryogenic pump artifact of MRI scanner, (v) real-time fMRI based neurofeedback, (vi) nicotine addiction research via neuroimaging, and (vii) an early diagnosis of neurodegenerative and/or neuropsychiatric diseases from multimodal neuroimaging using advanced methods such as deep learning/machine learning and representational similarity analysis.

PhD Candidates and Integrated MS-PhD Candidates

Juhyeon Lee (이주현)


One of my research aims is to discover individual distinctiveness in dynamic functional connectivity. I am also investigating how information (e.g., text/language) is processed in the brain. Mostly, I utilize deep learning and machine learning techniques for the analysis.

Changha Lee (이창하)


I’m interested in developing algorithms to figure out how cognitive processes work by using fMRI data.

JaeEon Kang (강재언)


I am interested in Emotion processing with deep-learning and neuroplasticity algorithms for brain diseases with fMRI.

MS Candidates

SooHyun Jeon (전수현)


I am interested in integrating genetics and brain imaging for mental disorders.

Sangsoo Jin (진상수)


I am interested in brain mechanisms of recognizing objects and learning complex behaviors. Current research aims are (1) designing a non-fMRI, web-based behavioral experimental framework, and (2) utilizing a VR-like environment to study reinforcement learnings in human participants.

Jinsoo Jeon (전진수)


My research interest is emotion processing with deep-learning by combining multimodal datasets including EEG-fMRI.


Jundong Hwang (황준동)


I’m interested in AI-based CAD(computer aided diagnosis) of several psychiatric disorders such as depression, autism, to treat them right on time.
