Our laboratory focused on the neural mechanisms of mind. Our research theme with human participants and non-human primates as follows;

Study with macaque (Japanese and rhesus monkeys)

  • Neural representation of emotion in amygdala/prefrontal cortex/ cingulate cortex
  • Neural connection of brain areas related to emotion
  • Neural mechanism of motor rhythm control

Study with common marmoset

  • Effect of neurotransmitters on brain function and behavior
  • Relationship of brain and behavior using gene recombination technology
  • Developing animal model of psychosis/developmental disorder
  • Development of devices for behavioral assessment

Study with human participants

  • Psychophysics
  • EEG, ERP
