Evo-Devo-Socio Approach to the Mind

Kazuo Okanoya
Professor, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

To integrate research and educational resources for human mind and behavior, we established Utokyo Institute for Diversity and Adaptation of Human Mind (Utidahm), Center for Integrative Science of Human Behavior (CiSHub), and Program for Human Integrative Science and Education of Mind (Phisem). At present, professors from eight departments participate in these programs. We propose to further integrate these programs to study Evo-Devo-Socio aspects of human mind and behavior.
