Amano et al., Journal of Neurophysiology, 2009

Research scope

  We study the neural mechanisms underlying visual perception and multisensory integration with combining psychophysics and non-invasive brain imaging (fMRI and MEG). Specifically, we are interested in developing and applying new techniques such as neurofeedback and electric current stimulation, to understand the neural causes of sensory perception.
