Profile

Yukiyasu Kamitani, Ph.D.
Professor at Graduate School of Informatics, Kyoto University
Department Head at ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories (ATR Fellow)

He received B.A. in Cognitive Science from University of Tokyo, and Ph.D. in Computation and Neural Systems from California Institute of Technology. He continued his research in cognitive and computational neuroscience at Harvard Medical School and Princeton University. In 2004 he joined ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories, and since 2015 he is Professor at Kyoto University. He is a pioneer in the field of "brain decoding", which combines neuroimaging and machine learning to translate brain signals to mental contents. He was named Research Leader in Neural Imaging on the 2005 “Scientific American 50”, and received many awards including Tsukahara Memorial Award (2013), JSPS Prize (2014), and Osaka Science Prize (2015). In 2018 he was selected as an ATR Fellow. He collaborated with Pierre Huyghe, providing brain-decoded imagery movies for the exhibition “UUmwelt” at Serpentine Galleries, London (2018).

【はじめに】腕神経叢引き抜き損傷や四肢切断後の幻肢痛は、障害部位に起因する痛みだけでなく、脊髄や中枢での異常活動が痛みの原因となっている。特に、感覚運動野では、求心路遮断後の大脳皮質再構築が痛みを生じていると考えられている。しかし大脳皮質での異常な活動に起因する疼痛は制御が難しく、有効な治療法に乏しい。我々はbrain-machine interface(BMI)を用いて皮質活動に可塑的変化を誘導し、難治性疼痛の病態を解明し、新たな治療法につながる成果を得た(Nature Communic...

Dreaming is generally thought to be generated by spontaneous brain activity
during sleep with patterns common to waking experience. This view is supported
by a recent study demonstrating that dreamed objects can be predicted from
brain activity du...
