Department of Psychology

How exactly do the cognitive activities of humans and animals function? How does the brain work? In the Department of Psychology, we strive to perform education and research on these kinds of problems in cognitive psychology. Concretely speaking, in addition to areas with a long history like perception, attention, memory, learning, and development, we also work on relatively new fields such as neuroscience, music, and attraction. Specifically, we aim to gain a more profound understanding of all of these phenomena and the mechanisms behind them. We have also started to work on industrial application. All instructors in this department work together to help provide an education for the next generation of specialists and researchers.
