Naotaka Fujii | TEDxTokyo 2011
We humans are irrational beings, and how our brains work remains a massive mystery. Dr. Naotaka Fujii—who currently heads up the Laboratory for Adaptive Intelligence, BSI, at research institute RIKEN—wants to discover why.
The former MIT researcher’s dream is to devise interactive brain-machine interface and interactive virtual reality (VR) technologies that reveal how the human brain functions in reality, and make VR interactive communication just like real life—think Inception without the criminal element. His ultimate goal is to help us learn how to adapt our social behavior.
Dr. Fujii is a member of the Society for Neuroscience, Japan Society of Neuroscience and Japan Society of Physiology. In 2009, his book Social Brains won the 63rd Mainichi Publication and Culture Award in the natural science category.
