Executive Manager

  Human Information Science Laboratory uses approches such as information science, psychophyics, and neuroscience to investigate mechanisms underlying our perception, emotion, and motion, for understanding how environmental and social information is processed in human body and brain. The research findings are expected to serve as fundamentals of future information technologies that are conceptually novel and user-friendly.
