Cognitive Neurotechnology Unit
Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS)
Toyohashi University of Technology

1-1 Hibarigaoka, Tenpaku, Toyohashi, Aichi, 441-8580, Japan

CNt approach is to use non-invasive method for measuring brain such as EEG, to clarify our cognition and behavior and apply these results to brain-machine interface (BMI) and neuromarketing. Our unit accepts applicants for Ph.D students in Toyohashi University of Technology. Funding opportunities for Ph.D students are found here. If you are interested in our research, feel free to contact us.

CNt is collaborated with Nakuchi laborabory (VPAC) and participates in the Shimojo (Caltech)-TUT International Collaborative Research Laboratory (Mind & Brain Laboratory for Perceptual and Cognitive Processing) and TUT-ASMO Advanced Motion Technology Laboratory Project.

Our unit accepts international MS students, Ph. D candidates, and Ph. D researchers, who are interested in our cognitive neuroscience researches. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us to get detailed information. Please check our university website.

If you are interested in Mext scholarship (Japanese Government Scholarship (University Recommendation), please contact me at least by Dec 1. The deadline of our university is usually January.
