Kohei Asano  |  Program-Specific Research Fellow  |  Cognitive Neuroscience

Even when we see the same thing, it doesn’t mean that we perceive it the same way. As an elementary school teacher, I worked with students who had various personalities, which inspired my interest in individual differences in perception. I research the cognition of human vision, using images of brain function and brain structure. My current research focuses on developmental dyslexia and the brain mechanism that might cause reading disability.
