The human brain is the most complex, sophisticated, and powerful information-processing device known. Brain science is said to be the largest frontier and the most important subject in the science and technology fields for the 21st century. One of the greatest mysteries in brain science is the human ability to perceive visually presented objects with high accuracy and speed. Understanding the human brain's 3-D visual mechanism will lead to a big breakthrough in brain science. My research theme is to study the mechanism of the 3-D visual system in the human brain. I hope to elucidate it by measuring brain activities using noninvasive fMRI measurement techniques. I would like to systematically study the human visual processes, including the contribution from the high level cortex, such as prefrontal and parietal cortex, instead of only focusing on the occipital visual cortex.
