現在の研究テーマ(current research project)

Creative problem-solving is critical for all spheres of innovation and pioneering thought. Some of the most creative scientific contributions to society were devised upon awakening from sleep. My research project aims to investigate how our memories interacted and reorganized during sleep to solve a problem or create ideas. Proving the conceptual role of sleep in creating new ideas will be center of future research focusing on the power of offline brain activity.

抱負(ambitious future plan)

‘’Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.’’ Malcolm X . I cannot erase this quote from my mind and every time I remember it, I reply ‘’tomorrow belongs to me because I am preparing myself from today’’. Thus, I do all my best now hoping to make unique discoveries in the future and to be a leading neuroscientist. My future goal is to make scientific breakthroughs which will be taught in schools and universities forever.
