Research topics

I investigate the mechanisms of autism-spectrum disorders(ASD).

Study of hyper/hyposensitivity in ASD
I am focusing on aberrant sensory processing as a core symptom of ASD.

Animal study
I use non-human animals as ASD models and for comparative study.

Gene knock-out model mice

I perform translational studies by using CAPS2 gene knock-out mice as an ASD model animal.

Comparative cognitive science by using non-human primates

I have performed a comparative study to elucidate the evolutional origin of human cognition, and performed behavioral pharmacology.
