I am engaging in non-invasive human brain functional measurements such as EEG and fMRI. In particular, I am developing simultaneous recordings of fMRI and EEG to achieve fMRI spatial resolution with EEG temporal resolution. Our simultaneous fMRI and EEG techniques have been evaluated worldwide, for example, receiving an award from the top international journal “NeuroImage”. I am working on elucidating the mechanisms of various functions related to human communication, for example, the functions that form the basis of communication such as speech recognition and self-other segregation, by using these functional brain measurements.
