About Me: 
Assistant Professor (CCRMA) Ph.D. (Physiology), National Institute for Physiological Sciences, Okazaki, Japan; Masters (Electrical Engineering), Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan. Her post-doctoral and research-associate work at Rotman Research Institute in Toronto was supported by awards from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. Her research continues to explore the biological nature of human musical ability by examining brain activities with non-invasive human neurophysiological measures such as magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG). Research topics include neural oscillations for auditory perception, auditory-motor coupling, brain plasticity in development and aging, recovery from stroke with music-supported therapy, and re-learning of speech and music after cochlear implantation.
