Innovative approaches for the compilation of non-human primate brain map
Keio University team will perform brain mapping by integrated neurotechnologies for disease studies as a partner institute. To reach our goal, we will perform two projects “Establishment of disease model marmosets and providing research environment” and “Marmoset brain structure and function analysis using MRI and electron microscope”. For understanding psycho-neurologic diseases, disease model marmosets will be produced and analyzed using MRI or electron microscope including new technologies.
Neural networks underlying higher brain functions in common marmosets
The Primate Research Institute team extensively analyzes neural networks underlying cognitive and social behavior of common marmosets and develops marmoset models for human disease/disorder with various gene transfer vectors. The Informatics team develops new informatics methods for primate connectomics.
