Prof. Hidenao Fukuyama, M.D., Ph.D.

Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine

Prof. Hidenao Fukuyama, M.D., Ph.D. is a director of Human Brain Research Center in Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine. His research works on the human brain function using non-invasive techniques, such as MRI, PET, MEG, TMS and so on. The main purpose is directed to disclose the functional localization and connectivity of the human brain, and research the physiological mechanisms of the disorders in the CNS. The most important thing in exploring the brain function we think is to base it on multiple aspects using available imaging or physiological apparatuses.
