YUKI, Masaki

Professor | Social psychology, cultural psychology

Using a socioecological approach, my research focuses on how characteristics of society impact the human behavior and psychology.
OHNUMA, Susumu

Professor | Environmental social psychology

I take a social psychological approach towards consensus making and public acceptance, focusing on issues which require public decision making involving entire societies. I mainly deal with social dilemmas, procedural justice, risk governance, and trust.
TAKAHASHI, Nobuyuki

Professor | Social psychology

With a strong “backbone” framework rooted in a “macro-micro” social psychology, and taking an adaptation theoretical approach, I conduct research into the interaction between the individual and society.
TAKAHASHI, Taiki

Associate professor | Behavioral neuroeconomics, quantum decision theory

My aims are to elucidate the molecular and neural mechanisms underlying decision making (e.g., decisions under uncertainty, inter-temporal choice, and social decision making), using theoretical and experimental techniques from scientific disciplines such as neurobiology, psychophysics, and quantum information theory.
TAKEZAWA, Masanori

Associate Professor | Social psychology, cultural evolution

In the last decade, researchers in different disciplines have been trying to synthesize social sciences under a Darwinian evolutionary framework. This newly emerging field is best called evolutionary social science. I have been working closely in close relation with this movement both theoretically and empirically.
TAKIMOTO. Ayaka

Associate Professor | Comparative developmental cognitive science

The core theme of my research rests on exploring the evolutionary and developmental process of the nonhuman social animals’ cooperative mind and its psychological basis, using the perspective of comparative cognitive (developmental) science.
NAKAJIMA, Akira

Assistant Professor | Applied statistics

My focus is on developing tools and analytical strategies for extracting meaning and insight from complex experimental and survey data.
TSUCHIDA, Shuhei

Using computer simulations and experiments, my current research is focused on the evolution of cooperation and punishment.
KINJO, Takuji

My research focuses on the rationality/irrationality of human decision making.
OGUSU, Natsuki

Making use of the knowledge of animal behavior and ecology, I study the dynamics of relational mobility and individual strategies.
YOKOYAMA, Miki

I investigate how people reach agreement and acceptance in a decision making scenario that involves decisions affecting broader society, using behavioural games and experiments.
Wen-Qiao Li
TATEISHI, Wakaba

I am interested in how cooperative behavior can be promoted and maintained in large and complex human societies.
Currently, I am mainly studying the mechanisms that enable the construction of "Mutual cooperation and mutual trust, beyond group boundaries".
NAKATA, Seiya

I'm studying "the effects of teaching on the development of technology across generations" and "the origins and evolution of human language features" using laboratory experiments and computer simulations. The influence of teaching on technology improvement, and experimental research on language evolution.
HOMMA, Shogo

I mainly focus on human dynamics by adopting the approaches of evolution, neuroimaging, and compational neuroscience.
