  • In terms of study methods, the laboratory will compare the process of learning between non-human primates and humans (evolutionary perspective), children / adults and the elderly (individual development perspective), monozygotic twins and heterozygous twins (genetic perspective), and healthy people and patients with brain injury (systems perspective) in order to understand the cognitive neural mechanisms of learning under the combined influence of brain development and genetic constraints. Experimental techniques to be used include behavioral and molecular genetics, single cell recording, electroencephalography, and magnetic resonance imaging of brains, as well as traditional psychophysical methods. Corresponding to these multidimensional study methods, the laboratory has a highly interdisciplinary team of researchers with backgrounds from psychology, neurobiology, medicine, information science, and pedagogy. The laboratory aims to produce world-class scientific innovations, serve the needs of the country and society, and become an international first-class research center for learning and brain plasticity, a center to disseminate learning theories, and a center for program development and consulting.
