My research focuses on the transient process of binocular rivalry, and computational mechanisms of information processing in the brain.
In my past research, I have recorded MEG or EEG responses during binocular rivalry with a newly developed steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) analytical method, termed ‘phase template analysis’. I am trying to clarify the primitive decision process in the brain with binocular rivalry using novel analytical methods.
I also investigate the effect of neural inhibition on a large scale neural population by numerical simulation of model neurons to understand the mechanisms of information processing in the brain.
