Cognitive and Molecular Research Institute of Brain Diseases

Founded in 1963, this Research Institute was established as the Cognitive and Molecular Research Institute of Brain Diseases, Kurume University, and granted the “Project for establishing open research centers in private universities” by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, in April 2002.

This Institute is widely open for collaborative researchers in and outside of Kurume University and aims at interdisciplinary studies. It consists of the clinical and research divisions. The former involves not only psychological testing but also a Clinic for Dementia. The latter specializes in studies on “Mind and Brain”, the main projects being “cognitive and neuroscientific studies on adult and geriatric diseases” , “molecular biology in adult and geriatric diseases” and “molecular genetics and gene therapy studies on psychological and neurological diseases in pediatrics”.

To address our research projects topics, we use a multi-method approach employing a wide range of measures (e.g. endocrine, autonomic,immune, subjective-psychological tests) and methods (e.g. magnetic resonance imaging, thermal infrared imaging), both in the field and the laboratory, allowing us to probe cognitive and molecular systems on different levels and under different conditions.
