Speaker:Dr. Xiaoqing Hu

Speaker Bio:  Dr. Xiaoqing Hu is currently a post-doc researcher at the Department of Psychology, University of Texas at Austin. He obtained his Ph.D. in 2014, from Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, with an emphasis on Brain Behavior and Cognition. His research interests include social cognition, sleep, learning & memory, morality. He has published over 20 peer-review research papers in Science, Psychological Science, Journal of Experimental Psychology, etc. 

Abstract: Although it is widely acknowledged that sleep can stabilize and strengthen recent learning and memories, until recently researchers start to directly manipulate off-line memory processing during sleep. I will first summarize recent evidence suggesting that during sleep, people can either (i) boost desirable memories or (ii) get over painful memories. I will also present new findings, which was published in Science, that during sleep; people can even weaken their long-lasting attitudes and beliefs, such as implicit racial biases and gender stereotypes. Implications and future directions are discussed.
