Shenzhen Peacock Program: Category C Talents. Director for Body-Brain-Mind Laboratory. He has obtained his both master and doctoral degrees in the United States. His research interest has focused on lifestyle behaviors (exercise, caloric restriction, mindfulness) and brain health (cognition and motor learning/procedural memory). Particularly, he is strongly interested in identifying how exercise modalities can be used to improve cognitive function and effectively regulate emotion in both healthy and clinical populations across the lifespan. Meanwhile, his team has used the dual-process theoretical models at which affective (pleasure and displeasure) responses to exercise are investigated in both behavioral and biological perspectives. Such findings can be translated to behavior-change in physical activity and exercise. He has published nearly 80 peer-reviewed scientific articles and currently serves as editorial board member in International Journal of Clinical and Health Psychology (SSCI, Q1),Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice (SCI, Q2).
