Division of Innovative Research and Development Advanced Research & Development Programs for Medical Innovation(AMED-CREST, PRIME)

Integrated understanding of multi-sensing networks and elucidation of their control mechanisms leading to the innovation of medical technologies

[Research and Development Objectives] Integrated understanding of human multi-sensing networks
and elucidation of their control mechanisms

Outline of the Research & Development (R&D) Area

This Objective aims to develop an integrated understanding of multi-sensory systems, including sensory systems and peripheral nerve networks, and to develop methods to visualize and control these systems. Specifically, this Objective aims to achieve the following:

(1) Understand peripheral neural circuit mechanisms and clarify disease pathology to help overcome disease
(2) Develop methods to visualize and control peripheral nerve activity and new treatment methods
(3) Clarify and apply the mechanisms involved when sensory systems receive, process, and act on signals
(4) Develop technology platforms for methods to visualize and control sensory systems
