Dr.Shigeto Furukawa,
Executive Manager

  Human Information Science Laboratory uses approaches such as information science, psychology, and neuroscience to study the mechanisms underlying human perception, emotion, and movement, and to understand how environmental and social information is processed in the human body and brain. These findings are expected to serve as bases for future information technologies that are conceptually new and user-friendly.
