Fundamental Psychology

Experimentally uncovering the mechanisms and laws of perception, cognition, and emotion

In our psychological experiments, we study optical illusion, face perceptions, makeup perceptions, object recognition, etc. using psychophysical methods. We also use cognitive psychology methods to study mental imagery, spatial cognition, memory, thought, judgment, motivation, facial impression, emotion, sensitivity, etc. In addition, we undertake research in physiological psychology measuring electroencephalography, autonomic nervous system, mimetic muscle activities, etc.
