Ryuhei Ueda ｜ Assistant Professor ｜ Cognitive Neuroscience
We have different kinds of interpersonal relationships in our daily lives. Among them, romantic relationships are one of the closest relationships, which have attracted evolutionary and social psychologists. I have been working on its cognitive and neural mechanisms using psychological experiments and neuroimaging techniques; specifically, I am interested in how we build and maintain the exclusive and long-term relationship with a significant other.
