Cocoan lab is a neuroimaging research lab led by Dr. Choong-Wan Woo.
The keywords of our research include:
fMRI; Machine learning; Neuroimaging biomarkers; Data science; Translational research; Predictive modeling; Brain decoding, Encoding-decoding model; Pain; Emotions; Psychiatric and neurologic disorders; Mind-body interaction; Behavioral medicine; Network science; Psychological and social pain modulation; Emotion regulation, and more.
The mission of our lab is to understand pain and emotions in the perspective of data science, cognitive/affective/social neuroscience, and psychology. We also aim to develop clinically useful neuroimaging models and tools that can be used and shared across different research groups and clinical settings.
Our main research tools include functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI; we’re using 3T and 7T MRI), psychophysiology measures (skin conductance, pupilometry, electrocardiogram, respiration), electroencephalogram (EEG), and other behavioral measures such as facial expression, eye movement, etc. Most importantly, we use data science (computational) tools to model and understand affective, cognitive, and behavioral responses.
