Intracellular messenger function of hydrogen peroxide and its regulation by peroxiredoxin

Abstract : Despite its inherent toxicity, H2O2 is produced in a regulated fashion by many mammalian cell types as a signaling molecule that mediates numerous biological responses. H2O2 is distinct from other messenger molecules, however, in that it acts not by […]

Microdroplet Chemistry

Abstract : My research group has been studying chemical reactions in microdroplets and comparing the findings with the behavior of the same reaction in bulk solution.  Our detection method has been a high-resolution mass spectrometer.  Two different experimental setups are employed, […]

From Centenarian to semisupercentenarian and supercentenarian study

Abstract : We started centenarian study in 1992, to know the biomedical characteristics of centenarian. During this first wave study, we found the centenarian is a fascinating people who experienced many life events, sometimes sad and sometime happy. We thought that […]

Hierarchical processing in the brain

Abstract : Language processing is a trait of human species. The knowledge about its neurobiological basis has been increased considerably over the past decades. In patient studies, various lesions have been known to be related to specific language deficits. In the […]

Novel mechanisms regulating NMDAR-dependent synaptic plasticity: anion channels and presynaptic NMDARs

Abstract : Presynaptic glutamate released by the certain type of neural activities can activate N-methyl-D-aspartate subtype of glutamate receptors (NMDARs) in postsynaptic dendrites, leading to induction of long-term potentiation (LTP) at many excitatory synapses. However, recent studies have also suggested possible […]

Forebrain-specific roles of phospholipase Cγ1 for normal and pathological behavior

Abstract : Manic episodes are one of the major diagnostic symptoms in a spectrum of neuropsychiatric disorders that include schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder (BD). Despite a possible association between BD and the gene encoding phospholipase Cγ1 (PLCG1), its etiological […]

Brain-Inspired Artificial Neural Network: A Neurobiologist’s View On Research Innovation: A Personal View

Abstract : In this talk, I will discuss the nature of innovation in research, drawing mainly from my experience as a neurobiologist. I will address six aspects of innovative research – novelty, significance, continuity, completeness, uniqueness, and timeliness – and these […]

Language, memory, and brain: A cognitive neuroscience perspective on first and second language

Abstract : Increasing evidence suggests that language learning, knowledge, and use crucially depend on two learning and memory systems in the brain: declarative memory and procedural memory. These systems, which also exist in other vertebrate species, appear to have been co-opted […]

Fuel Cell Electrocatalysis: Accomplishments and Challenges

Abstract : In spite of an admirable progress in reducing the content of platinum in polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) electrodes the electrocatalyst cost accounts for nearly half of the PEFC stack cost and for a quarter of the anticipated cost […]
