Overview

To elucidate the pathology of mental disorders and establish new treatment methods, we multifacetedly conduct research on: 1. the pathology of mental disorders using patient-derived iPS cells and animal models, adopting molecular biological and electrophysiological techniques and based on the latest findings in neuroscience; 2. pathology of a broad range of diseases, including senile dementia and childhood diseases, using MRI and NIRS as clinical imaging technologies; and 3. development of methods of cognitive functional rehabilitation for patients with schizophrenia using PC game programs. It is nationally rare for a single department to perform such multifaceted research activities. In each field, we conduct top-level studies, and publish their outcomes in major international journals.
