If (hu)man is the measure of all things, what is the measure of human?
Welcome to the Meta-Self Lab!
The lab is led by Prof., Dr., Hu Chuan-Peng at the School of Psychology, Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing, China. We are interested in how human beings process self-related information, with a “3M” approach: meta-science, (cognitive) modeling, and (psychological) measurement. We are also trying to apply the “3M” approach to the mental health issues in the real world.
Openness, transparency, and reproducibility are core values in our research. We keep learning new methods and and adopting new practices to make our research as rigorous and robust as possible.
Equality is another core value of our lab. We are dedicated to fostering a culture where everyone involved is respected and every idea is valued.
the use of scientific methodology to study science itself
A knowledge representation that contains knowledge about us
a mathematical model that embodies a set of statistical assumptions concerning the generation of sample data
Open Science is becoming a mainstream scientific ideology in psychology and related fields. However, due to inadequate research infrastructures, limited resources, and a lack of local support amongst various other difficulties, researchers - especially early career researchers (ECRs) in developing countries - are facing significant hurdles in moving Open Science forward.
The neural representation of self is a fundamental question for brain research. Employing activation likelihood estimation (ALE) meta-analyses, we assessed the commonalities and distinctions between different components of the self by focusing on the ‘physical’ self and the ‘psychological’ self – assessed respectively through face processing and self-referential tasks.
