A profound idea in this course is that in order to really understand human brain function, you need to reconstruct a human being. To clarify any brain function such as sensation, movement, communication, emotion or language we take the viewpoint of information processing and integrate experimental means like neurophysiology, psychology, brain imaging and robotics into a computational framework. Taking this approach, ATR is internationally recognized as a leading center for computational neuroscience, aiming at cutting edge research.

Each student belonging to this laboratory works at one of the laboratories below in ATR.

CNS Computational Neuroscience Laboratories

CMC Cognitive Mechanisms Laboratories

NIA Neural Information Analysis Laboratories
