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).
