Profile

Research Subject
Development of cognitive function in children using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
The objective of my research is to clarify the processes and mechanisms of development of cognitive function in children from aspects of neuronal activity and brain anatomy. I will use MRI to reveal: 1) Development of brain neural network, 2) Development of brain morphology, 3) Development of cognitive function in children, adolescents, as well as adults. At the same time, I will examine which types of lifestyle and living environment will affect children's brain development by conducting neurocognitive function tests and questionnaire surveys.
