We can see and recognize things, and act without feeling any difficulties. Our mission is to explore visual function and the mechanisms of the brain which allow us to do so, and to develop new technology, including color universal design, spectral imaging, for visual information processing based on the fundamental vision research.

Our research interests focus on the molecular basis for the symbiosis between multicellular organisms and microbes, which has not only been playing key roles in evolutionary history of life, but is also important for agricultural and medical biotechnologies.

Kowa KOIDA
Associate Professor

Kowa KOIDA

My research interest lies in the field of systems neuroscience, particularly in the functional relationship between visual perception and neuron activity in the cerebral cortex. The goal of my research is understanding neuronal processes that mediate color perception and object recognition. I have been conducting behavioral and physiological experiments with trained monkeys to perform cognitive tasks. Human psychophysics is also carried out to support correlative evidence between animal behavior and human perception.
