中脳上丘における視覚情報処理と視覚運動変換の神経メカニズム
(English)
Neural mechanisms of visual processing and visuomotor transformation in the superior colliculus
Overview of the research
(Japanese)
上丘は,進化的に古い動物では視覚情報処理の中枢を担ってきた.哺乳類では大脳皮質の発達にともない,高次の視覚機能は大脳皮質視覚野に移っているが,上丘を介した視覚経路も依然として保存され,注意の生成に重要だと考えられている.私は,上丘を介して間接的に処理される初期感覚情報の意味と神経メカニズムを明らかにしたいと考える.
(English)
Superior colliculus (SC) has a key role for neural basis of visuomotor transformation and formation of our attention. Most visual information is processed in the visual cortices and the SC also process visual information in parallel. I am interested in the meaning and neural circuit mechanisms of this subcortical visual processing.
