The 21st century is called the cerebral century.
By examining the mechanism of the human brain, we can develop a more flexible system of control than the conventional one and also an interface. It is possible to make use of this for the early diagnosis of brain diseases such as dementia.
The eyes are “the windows of the mind,” in the words of the Japanese proverb. At our laboratory, we study how visual information is processed and understood by examining the movement the ophthalmography of the eyes when they view or look at certain objects.Based on the above research, we are studying a method of producing an easy-to-understand TV program and Internet home page, the development of a diagnostic technique for dementia and to clarify the skill that the practician accomplishes his/her work skillfully by analyzing their eye movementsWe are also developing three-dimensional TV and studying three-dimensional human vision by analyzing the binocular eye movements.
