to where the thoughts emerge

The primary interest of the laboratory is the neural circuit mechanisms of higher cognitive functions, such as learning and memory, in the brain. A measurement method that makes the laboratory unique in the field is an optical recording method that uses voltage-sensitive dye (VSD) with electrophysiology. As one of the leading laboratories in the use of this technique, we have been continuously developing the method since the 90s and have provided established tools to colleges throughout the world.
