Zhizhao JiangDoctoral researcher
I am a PhD student at Lise Meitner Research Group Cognition and Plasticity. My main research interest lies in exploring plasticity of the neural network for language with neuroimaging. Currently, I am working with Prof. Gesa Hartwigsen and Prof. Dorothee Saur on investigating the longitudinal changes of effective connectivity in post-stroke aphasia.
Previously, I obtained my MSc degree in Language Sciences (with specialisation in Neuroscience and Communication) with Distinction from University College London in UK. My master thesis project examined the effects of an auditory training programme among older adults using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) under the supervision of Prof. Peter Howell and Dr. Guangting Mai.
