KRC Cognition, Behavior, & Brain Intensive Lecture 2019 “Neural Networks Associated with Multisensory Processing, From Tactile Sensation to Social Cognition”
For two days (December 26 and 27, 2019), Associate Professor Nobuhito Abe lead the KRC Cognition, Behavior, & Brain Intensive Lecture 2019, “Neural Networks Associated with Multisensory Processing, From Tactile Sensation to Social Cognition” at Kyoto University’s Inamori Center.
Associate Professor Ryo Kitada (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore) was invited as a lecturer. He explained the neural bases of multisensory processing, from basic knowledge to the latest research results. Prof. Kitada’s research explores the unique mechanisms of tactile sensation using multiple complementary methods, such as psychophysics, fMRI, and TMS.
Many researchers and students from inside and outside the university were in attendance, taking advantage of the opportunity to attend a lecture by a researcher who is active internationally. In addition to holding a Q&A session with the audience, Prof. Kiada discussed the research environment overseas.
