My research interest is to understand and improve cognitive health for an individual and a society.

I have started a new laboratory, Department of Cognitive Health Science.

I coined the new word “Cognitive Health Science”, which is a combination of Cognitive Science and Health Science. We defined cognitive health as healthy and adaptive mental states (cognitive and emotional) in all one’s life.

To understand and improve Cognitive Health, we use multiple research methods such as psychological experiments and questionnaire methods, brain imaging methods, daily intervention methods using randomized controlled trials, and meta-analysis methods.
We believe that cognitive health would be almost as significant as physical health, social health, and mental health in the future.

Our activities are supported by The Leading Initiative for Excellent Young Researchers (LEADER) project of The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT).
