A systematic review paper about video gaming was published in Brain Sciences

ビデオゲームをすることが、脳形態や脳活動に及ぼす影響を調べた介入研究の結果をレビューした論文が、Brain Sciences誌に採択されました。 We published a systematic review paper which investigated the effects of playing video gaming on Brain functions and structures. This paper was a joint research project with Mr. Denilson Brilliant T. He was a visiting undergraduate student from Indonesia. He visited our institute twice. Congratulations Deni. Brilliant T.

A new protocol paper was published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience

高負荷の有酸素運動と脳トレを組み合わせたコンビネーション介入の即時効果とその神経基盤を調べる研究のプロトコール論文が、Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience誌に掲載されました。 We published a protocol paper which investigates the acute benefit and neural bases of high-intensity exercise with brain training game in the older adult. This project is a joint idea with Mr. Himmelmeier, Robin. Mr. Robin was an international exchange research student from German. He worked hard during his stay. Congratulations Robin, this is the first published paper with us.

Dr. Raquel visited us

Dr. Raquel Cervigón Abad, from University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain, visited us and gave the lecture at 6th International Smart Aging and Brain Seminar. We are working on a collaborative study for Aging and cognition. Thank you for coming, Raquel. Next time, we will visit you. Dr. Raquel presented our joint research at the International Smart Aging and Brain Seminar.
