Master's Program
Doctoral Program

Research Topic
Analyses of the interface between syntax and morphology, explication of linguistic change in time and space

I specialize in the comparative research and theory construction in Asian languages, as well as the mechanism of linguistic change through language contact.

TAGUCHI Tetsuya

SHIMOJIMA Atsushi

Professor

Research Field
cognitive science, mathematical logic

Master's Program
Doctoral Program

Research Topic
Logical and psychological study of the cognitive functions of diagrammatic representations

I approach the issue of the functions and anti-functions of diagrammatic representations from the viewpoints of both logic and psychology. I use the method of mathematical logic to form hypotheses on how diagrammatic representations express information and how they help our thinking and understanding. The hypotheses are then tested through psychological experiments.

Research Field
virtual reality

Master's Program
Doctoral Program

Research Topic
Study of the characteristics of representations with high realistic sensation

I compare and examine different effects that various multimedia information environments with high realistic sensation bring to humans. My research interests also include effective interaction between computerized systems and humans, and non-destructive and high-precision digitization of information contained in a cultural heritage and displaying it with high realistic sensation.

SUGIO Takeshi

Professor

Research Field
cognitive science, object recognition

Master's Program

Research Topic
Cognitive mechanisms of object recognition in cultural contexts

My recent research focuses on the cognitive mechanisms of reading diagrams such as tables and graphs. In order to read a diagram properly, we need to rely on conventional knowledge about how the diagram is constructed and how it corresponds to the external world. How we recognize objects and patterns in such cultural context is examined using a psychological method.

Professor

Research Field
cultural phylogenetics, mathematical philology, traditional cultures

Master's Program
Doctoral Program

Research Topic
Reconstructing the past, genealogy of manuscripts, fragrance, tea and flowers, brain waves and music

As bio-phylogenetics reconstructs history with the “ancestor-descendant” relationship, a phylogenetic point of view is necessary in the context of culture and language in order to reconstruct the past. For non-superficial, deep understanding of cultural phenomena, one must have a mathematical viewpoint and experience the actual culture. I teach how to analyze brain waves and music based on data analyses.
