Psychological study on interplay of cultural and genetic influences on psycho-social function

Project Gist

Overall goal of the lab is to create a new research field in human sciences.

Keywords

Cognitive psychology, Social science, Genetics, Brain, Conflict

Background, Purpose, and Project Achievements

Whether and how a wide range of factors such as developmental, genetic, socio-environmental, and all of these interactive mechanisms are involved in psychological processes underlying emotion and self-regulative process?

Nomura Laboratory addresses these questions employing a variety of methods such as brain imaging (fMRI, NIRS), genotyping and behavioral paradigms. In addition to bridge the gaps between psychology, neuroscience and molecular biology, overall goal of the lab is to create a new research field in human sciences. The lab runs the meeting for Social Life Science (SLS) regularly in the late morning on Wednesday.

Future Prospects

Through having a wide range of academic discussions with my team members, I hope that our research activities on SPIRTS can contribute to enhancing relations among international researchers in psychology while also developing a new research field.
