The Fukuda Lab

Read the mind to Lead the mind

Our mind is a highly efficient information processor capable of incredible things – however it is far from perfect. The Fukuda Lab attempts to understand why and how to optimize the mind’s cognitive processes. We strive to read the mind by discerning the cognitive and neural mechanisms behind our information processing abilities, and to lead the mind by improving these abilities utilizing adaptive and progressive techniques.

Please excuse the mess! Our website is under construction at the moment!
