ProfessorI am conducting research on human perceptual-cognitive processes and the characteristics of KANSEI (aesthetics) using experimental psychological methods. In particular, I am investigating the characteristics of the time and space that humans can directly perceive and interact with. My research goal is to understand the mental aspect of time and space to the extent that I can manipulate them as I intended.
Recent Topics of Interests:
The psychological basis of slow motion experiences (tachypsychia phenomenon) that are perceived during accidents such as traffic accidents, collisions, and falls.
The perceived time during the “Zone” or “Flow” experience.
The development of communication methods and strategies for avoiding potential dangers using perceptual illusions and cognitive biases.
The potential of psychology in addressing the measurement problem in observation.
Motto in Research or in Life:
You must keep your mind straight and not become trapped by preconceived favorite notions about yourself (The Book of Five Rings).
Hobby / Holiday:
I love listening to live music performances, watching RAKUGO (traditional Japanese comedic storytelling), going to the theater, and visiting art galleries to appreciate paintings and media arts.
