Towards a precise understanding of human brains; research that can help you maintain your physical and emotional health and live life to the fullest, whatever your age

Your brain determines the essence of “who you are,” that is, how you would like to live your life right now and in future, based on memory and learning up to now. In Alzheimer’s disease, the patients are gradually losing their memory and learning ability as neurons are degenerated in their brains. We are clarifying at the molecular level precisely why and how neurons die. Based on this understanding, we sincerely hope to apply our research findings to prevent death of neurons so that you can fully live your life in good health, maintaining the ability to self-recognize and make decisions on your own throughout your life.
