Welcome to the Social & Cognitive Neuroscience Lab
at the University of Hong Kong!


We are a cognitive neuroscience laboratory in the Department of Psychology at the University of Hong Kong led by Dr. Xiaoqing HU. Our research group consists of post-doctoral fellow, graduate students, research assistants and interns.



Our research aims at understanding how we remember and forget about our past experiences, and the neurocognitive processes supporting these memory dynamics. One fundamental assumption of this research is that memory plays a central role in shaping our preferences and beliefs, and in guiding our judgments and behaviors. Our research aims to elucidate how motivational, emotional and cognitive processes may influence memory processes. Of particular interests, we consider sleep as an indispensable component to complete our understanding of memory.
