Dr. Yukie Nagai has been investigating underlying mechanisms for social cognitive development by means of constructive approach. She designs computational neural network models for robots to learn to acquire cognitive abilities such as self-other cognition, estimation of others’ intention and emotion, altruism and so on based on her theory of predictive learning of sensorimotor signals. The simulator reproducing atypical perception in autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which has been developed by her group, greatly impacts on the society as it enables people with and without ASD to better understand potential causes for social difficulties. She is the research director of JST CREST Cognitive Mirroring since December 2016.
