About

January 4th, 2012

My name is Xu Cui, currently a Stanford research scientist and entrepreneur. I am interested in brain, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, MatLab and Adobe AIR. I am also interested in badminton.

  1. Brain Brain is mysterious. I received a Ph.D in neuroscience in 2007. One thing I learned about brain is that everything is constructed by brain, including time. I studied time perception with Drs Read Montague and David Eagleman at Baylor College of Medicine. I am also interested in perceptual space-time, brain-computer interface and mind-reading. Here is my own brain inflated (red=sulci and green=gyri) using freesurfer.

    I Also use Near Infrared Spectroscopy to measure human brain activity in vivo.
  2. Quantum mechanics Nothing is more puzzling than the behavior of an electron when it passes a wall with two slits. Which slit did it pass?
  3. Statistical mechanics Entropy is a beautiful concept.
  4. MatLab a great tool for numeric computation - especially in my field (fMRI and NIRS). I (together with Jian Li) wrote xjView, a program for visualizing brain images.
  5. Adobe AIR a great tool for elegant interface. Check out Peaya Paper, a cloud paper and PDF manager.
  6. Badminton Badminton is fun. I (together with my fantastic friends) organized the 5th Texas Medical Center Badminton Tournament.
