Research Outline

What kind of brain mechanism allows us to experience the outside world? Do we all share the same perceptual experiences?

In CiNet Hagura Group, we believe that these questions are tightly linked to the question of how h umans learn and control the body in the environment.

  • How do we efficiently learn and memorise various movement repertoires, and recall them at an adequate timing?
  • How do we learn to perceive our own action and body size/shape from sensorimotor experiences?
  • How does the way we act restricts our cognitive abilities?

We use psychophysical methods, computational modelling, neuroimaging as well as neurostimulation techniques.

Through our research, we aim to update our naive view about human beings.
