This week, as our community continues to grow, we take a short break from the Featured Article column to welcome our new members and introduce some membership-related features on the SfN-SG Website.
Your SfN-SG membership comes with a profile page on the chapter website to help improve your online presence. View your own profile and profiles of other members via the member directory page!
Edit Your Profile
You can edit your profile through the "Manage Account" page. Upload a photo of yourself, update your job title, and tell us about your research interests! You can also provide links to your social media accounts.
"I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Computational Brain Imaging Group (PI: Thomas Yeo) at National University of Singapore. My research focuses on developing machine learning algorithms to study individual differences in brain organization from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and exploring their relationship with human behaviors.
I completed my PhD at National University of Singapore (supervisor: Thomas Yeo). My PhD research focused on estimating individual-specific network-level and areal-level parcellation. Similar to connectivity strength, my thesis work demonstrated that individual-specific network or parcel topography might also serve as a fingerprint of human behavior.
I was trained as an Engineer. Before my PhD, I worked on Media Access Control (MAC) protocol in wireless networks and developed base station softwares for smart house in the Intelligent to Wireless Networking and Cooperative Control (PI: Xinping Guan & Cailian Chen) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University."

Research Assistant Position in Psychology and Neuroscience at Nanyang Technological University
The School of Social Sciences at NTU is looking for a candidate to join them as a Research Assistant. He or she will be an integral member of a research lab that advances research in understanding the neurocognitive processes underlying the belief in deceptive information.
Research Assistant Position in Neurobiology of Memory and Neurodegeneration at Duke-NUS Medical School
The Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders Program at Duke-NUS Medical School seeks to appoint a Research Assistant with a background in protein biochemistry and/or molecular neuroscience.
The project is a collaboration between the Claridge-Chang lab at Duke-NUS Medical School and the Manser lab at IMCB, A*STAR. Research duties will primarily involve the creation of tissue culture models and BioID constructs.
Multiple (Senior) Research Fellow Positions Available at NTU
The Centre for Lifelong Learning and Individualised Cognition (CLIC) is seeking a 1) research fellow in Neuroimaging and Cognition, 2) research fellow in Neuroimaging and MRI Pulse Sequence, and 3) Senior Research Fellow to manage and coordinate research activities focusing on cognitive flexibility and learning, and training-related brain changes among adults and adolescents.
These positions will be co-supervised by professors from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the University of Cambridge.
If you know of any collaboration/job opportunities that you would like to share with other neuroscience researchers in Singapore, send us the details!
Resources: Recordings from Brain Connectivity Workshop 2021 are now available!
This year's Brain Connectivity Workshop was held in May and took on the theme of "What does the mind think of the brain?". Talks in the workshop focus on consciousness and cognition, looking at the tripartite relationship between anatomical connectivity, brain dynamics and cognitive function.
Subject Recruitment: An fMRI Investigation of Hot and Cool Executive Functions in Adults with ADHD
The Clinical Brain Lab at NTU is recruiting individuals aged 21 to 40 who are clinically diagnosed with ADHD to participate in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study that aims to identity the neural correlates of social reward processing. The study will take place at NUS.
The PEBBLE Study at NTU/NIE is recruiting bilingual children aged 7 to 8 to participate in a study that aims to understand bilingual and biliteracy development. Children will complete a series of computerized language tasks at home or at NTU/NIE.
We would like to say a huge "Thank you!" to everyone who had informed us of any neuroscience events happening locally and internationally. Without you, we would not be able to share these events with over 450 subscribers!
"We are pleased to invite you to take part in the 7th Congress of the Asian College of Neuropsychopharmacology (AsCNP) that will be held as a Virtual Congress hosted from Singapore from October 22-23, 2021. The theme of the congress is “Advances in Neuropsychopharmacology: Spotlights on progress and beacons to the future."
Organized by Aaron Gitler from Stanford University and Zilong Qiu from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Neuro Zoom inivites two speakers each week to talk about their research. Viewers can join via zoom or watch the talks on their YouTube live channel. The next talks will be on July 20 by Pascal Kaeser from Harvard Medical School and Zhiping Pang from Rutgers University.
The International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN) and the Asian-Pacific Society for Neurochemistry (APSN) will be hosting the ISN-APSN Behavioural School 2021 on Dec 9-10, 2021 virtually. Application will start on July 15, 2021 and close on Sep 14, 2021. Students who are interested to attend are encouraged to apply early. Bursary for ISN-APSN school is available for qualifying students.
The 16th Meeting of the Asian-Pacific Society for Neurochemistry is going will take place on Dec 13-14, 2021. Abstract submission will open on July 15, 2021 and close on Sep 14, 2021. There will be awards and prizes to be won. Bursary for conference is available for qualifying students.
