Applied Brain Science Laboratory

Helping improve mental health and performances by visualizing how the brain works

It is now becoming possible to visualize how the human brain works under everyday environment, as measurement technologies are making a dramatic advancement. Our laboratory is attempting to understand how the human brain or mind works by using brain function imaging technologies, biometry technologies, and psychological approaches. By applying knowledge obtained from this research, we aim to develop technologies to assist people in retaining mental health and engaging in smooth communication with others. We are also in the middle of developing mental training methods to improve learning and sports performances.
