Yoshiyuki Ueda

Yoshiyuki Ueda  |  Assistant Professor  |  Visual Science, Cognitive Science

Our behavior consists of a lot of conscious and unconscious basic mechanisms. For example, when you take a cup on a table, your brain recognizes the shape and location of it and calculates how you should reach for it. Moreover, when you wait for a friend in downtown, you search for them among crowd of people, infer their emotion from their facial expression and gesture, and decide what to call to them.

How these mechanisms are achieved and acquired? Do they interact with each other? To reveal these problems, I investigate "attention," "emotion," and "cognition" mechanisms with behavioral experiments, eye movement recording, functional brain activity, genetic polymorphisms, cultural difference, and integration of cross-modal information.
