BIOGRAPHY

 

Dr. Cheng-Hao Tu is currently appointed as an assistant professor in the Graduate Institute of Acupuncture Science, College of Chinese Medicine, China Medical University (CMU), Taiwan. Dr. Tu specializes in the use of non-invasive brain imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electroencephalography (EGG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and positron emission tomography (PET), to research on behavioral neuroscience, pain medicine, and translational medicine. From the perspective of clinical neuroscience, Dr. Tu investigates the interactions among brain networks, behavior of organisms and environment.
