Main Research

 The memory function has an important role in our everyday life. We will forget the names of the family and place where we are living if memory does not work correctly. It is my main subjects to show how the memory is controlled by the brain. I am investigating the relationship between the central nervous system and animal memory using the technique of experimental psychology and neuroscience.
