Professor School of Information Science, Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology
Dr. Tanaka studied theoretical physics, especially string theory, as a graduate student at the Yukawa Institute of Kyoto University. After obtaining a Ph.D. in 2000, he switched to neuroscience. Since 2012, Dr. Tanaka has been an associate professor at Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. He now studies computational modeling of the nervous system and human behaviors, statistical signal processing of neuroimaging data, and human psychophysics of perception and motor control. Recently, he has been attracted to the emerging field of Mobile Brain/Body Imaging (MoBI) integrating his computational and signal processing expertise into MoBI experiments.
