Introduction of my research

I study the learning of language from infancy to adolescence, the development of social cognitive capabilities, and the development of related brain functions. For the past few years, in order to detect characteristic changes of brain function that predict developmental abnormality in infants, we have also performed cross-functional research on brain function and various behavioral indexes from infancy.
