Profile

To elucidate the human brain mechanism, I'm working on the research about a visual analysis system integrating human brain network analysis and visualization technology using time series data obtained by brain function measurement. We have also studied about integrative analysis of noninvasive human brain measurement such as MEG, fMRI, EEG, etc.

In addition, we developed an ultra-sensitive magnetometer called an optically pumped atomic magnetometer and applied to biomegnetic measurement (MEG, MSG, ultra-low magnetic field MRI, etc.).
