To understand the functions of the human brain such as cognition, sensation, and movement, it is necessary to develop technologies to measure and analyze brain activities in an advanced and diversified manner. We are improving and developing technologies including the spatial and temporal resolution of conventional functional MRI and multimodal measurement technologies focusing on structure and metabolism using ultra-high-field MRI to advance the technology for measuring brain function.

Using these measurement techniques, we would like to elucidate the mechanism of information processing in olfaction from both functional and morphological aspects.
