How do the biological, psychological, and social factors cause sex-specific abnormal behaviors in a specific development stage? This is the question that motivates the research in my laboratory, and I would like to provide the findings which lead to the development of intervention techniques for correcting sex-specific abnormal behaviors in a specific development stage. Moreover, I am also interested in the development of the methodology which expands the utility of animal models, since mice and rats are used in my research, as animal models for the study of human abnormal behaviors. Furthermore, our laboratory is promoting the collaboration between psychology and other disciplines to expand the research area of psychology.
