Research topics
A psychophysical study of visual motion processing as a basis for reading ability in Japanese
The ability to read and comprehend text smoothly and correctly is unique to humans. In this ability, however, there are some abnormalities, such as dyslexia, and there are considerable individual differences even among normal subjects. Previous studies reported that reading ability in English is associated with performance in non-linguistic visual motion tasks. The present study investigates the role of visual motion processing in Japanese reading ability.


I am grateful for receiving the Inamori Research Grant and determined to do my best to accomplish the research project.
