Personal profile

Personal profile

I am Yijin (Joanna) Lin. I have very much enjoyed my experience in UNNC as an undergraduate student, a member of research assistant, a PhD researcher, and now a teaching fellow in EDEN which has allowed me to see how our school has grown and developed over these years.


I have been involved in teaching the following modules:

  • EDEN1004 Academic Community
  • EDEN2000 Psycholinguistics
  • EDEN3001 Brain and Language
  • EDEN3004 Intercultural Communication (BA)

Research Interests

  • Bilingualism
  • Second language learning across the lifespan
  • Brain plasticity of language learning
  • Cognitive enhancements through language learning
  • Impacts of learning a new language on health, wellbeing and cognitive functions

My PhD thesis is about exploring the degree of brain plasticity for language learning in older learners by measuring their electro-physiological brains patterns using the Even-related Potential (ERP) technique. I have also studied possible impacts of the experience of learning a language later in life in terms of psychological well-being and other cognitive and affective factors.

Collaboration Opportunities

As the manager of the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language Laboratory (CNLL) here at UNNC I am currently involved in several research projects related to neuroeconomics, neuromarketing and brain training.
