Div. Cognitive Neuroscience
The Department of Human Brain Science was established to reveal the neural mechanisms underlying the ‘human’ mind and behavior. To accomplish this, we utilize functional neuroimaging as well as physical and behavioral measurements. We strive for a brain science that is considered a ‘hub’, connecting different fields of basic and application sciences that address human nature. Ultimately, we want to propose new ways where our lives as an aging society can be more ‘human’ from a neuroscientific perspective.
