Neurophysiologist interested in interventions of neuropsychiatric disorders.

Yuichi Takeuchi earned his BSc and MS in behavioral neuropharmacology from Nagoya City University in Japan, where he studied analgesic mechanisms of anti-epileptic drugs. He then received his PhD in neurophysiology from the National Institute of Physiological Sciences in Japan 2010, where he studied remodeling of the somatosensory pathway of rodents after peripheral nerve injury using in vitro electrophysiological techniques. After that, he continued studying the remodeling using neuroanatomical and in vivo electrophysiological techniques as a faculty of Tokyo Women's Medical University in Japan. His research is currently focused on real-time closed-loop interventions of neuropsychiatric disorders.
