I completed PhD. course at Tokyo Gakugei University on March 2008. And then, I worked for Chiba University as pos-doc. My PhD. and subsequent works in Japan were supervised by Prof. Tomoyoshi Komiyama in Chiba University. My research interest is motor control, especially, in interlimb or bimanual coordination, and interhemispheric interaction. To address such concerns, my work investigated the following issues by use of TMS technique: the role for the co-contraction of upper and lower limb muscles in muscular strength, the behavior of transcallosal pathway during bimanual movement. Currently, I work for Umeå University under the supervision of Prof. Roland S. Johansson. My pos-doc work in Umeå University just started on October 2008, and is proceeding toward the investigation of sensorimotor function of human hand.
