We are interested in neural systems supporting hierarchical processing, cognitive control, and language in the human brain. The Jeon lab currently investigates how brain activity for hierarchical sequence processing is represented looking at the following aspects: functional localization, functional connectivity, and structural connectivity by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as well as behavioral testing of healthy adults and patients. A sequence—an ordered combination of elements—underlies much of cognitive processes actively engaging in various human cognition such as language, visual-event, action, abstract rule, temporal contingency, music, and mathematics. Any complex system of human cognitive architecture is composed of sequences, be it a linear structure or a hierarchical structure. Therefore, investigating the essential role of hierarchical sequence processing cannot be overvalued and it deserves more advanced future research.
