Research Interests



He got Ph.D. from Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Japan (Biology). After that, he worked in Kobe Unviversity as a postdoc studying neuronal plasticity in the hippocampus and amygdala. Then he moved to Max-Planck Institute for Medical Research, Heidelberg Germany for my second postdoc to study the function of a sub-cellular archtecture of neuron in vivo. At that time, he used viral vectors, electrophysiological methods, and laser optics to bridge the gap between molecule and behavior in the field of neuroscience. After came back to Japan, he continue to try to elucidate the functions of neuronal circuit in the real brain and various bahaviors as outputs from them.
