The 5th KANSEI Brain Engineering Research Seminar held at the Center of KANSEI Innovation
On May 28 (Thur.), 2015, the 5th KANSEI Brain Engineering Research Seminar was held at the Center of KANSEI Innovation, with Minoru Shinohara, Associate Professor of the Georgia Institute of Technology, as the speaker.
Dr. Shinohara spoke on the subject of applying robotics/haptics technology to cognitive neuroscientific research. Following his presentation, participants engaged in a lively discussion of the role played by the sympathetic nervous system in motor learning, referring to Hiroshima Carp players’ training methods. The technology’s application to human sensibilities, such as motion control in the situation that makes a person nervous, was also discussed. The participants found the seminar very productive and informative.
