Grant Number: JPMJER1801

 

The human brain has evolved by adapting to various tools that humans invented by themselves, including characters and telephones. This fact indicates that the brain also has potentials for adapting even to new yet-unknown environments in the future.

In this project, we aim to address how the brain is plastic enough to handle complex technologies and explore the new dimension of the latent ability of the brain using artificial intelligence (AI). To unveil the potentials of the brain, we will utilize and develop techniques and tools in neuroscience and machine learning for the brain signals. Specifically, with extreme care of bioethics, we will conduct electrophysiological and behavioral experiments in rodents and apply these outcomes to human research.
