Research Interests

Humans learn many things when placed in a new environment, and adaptively change their behaviors. Our own brains and bodies sometimes change due to injury, deseases and aging. Such changes require us to learn and adapt to new conditions. Our laboratory develops technologies for supporting effective learning and adaptation. Our aim is to produce wisdom for improvement and maintenance of quality of life.
