Education/Training:

Kyoto University, Japan (1992-1996) B.S.

Kyoto University, Japan (1996-1998) M.S.

Kyoto University & RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan (1998-2002) Ph.D.

Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore MD (2002-2008) Postdoctoral

 

Current Research Interest:

The formation, maintenance, and rewiring of synaptic connections in the mammalian brain. In particular, how axonal innervations to postsynaptic targets are: (1) refined during brain development, and (2) reorganized in adulthood with learning and memory, and (3) with brain injury.
