Research Interests

Last updated: 18 October 2011

Dr. ChinLung Yang received his MA and PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Psychology (Cognitive). Previously he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Rice University, Texas, USA (2000-2002) and a Research Associate at the Learning Research and Development Center, University of Pittsburgh, PA, USA (2002-2006). He applies multi-disciplinary cognitive/neurocognitive paradigms to study of higher-order language comprehension in reading and language learning across different language systems, with a focus on Chinese and English. His central research theme examines the cognitive/neurocognitive bases of the way the language-specific properties of languages modulate the interaction between syntactic and sequential constraints of a language and the semantic/pragmatic interpretation of linguistic inputs. His teaching intends to incorporate his research specificity with the multidimensional aspects of psychology as a branch of empirical studies for social science research embedded in the cultural context.
