202004.01 How can we learn using tools by just observing? (New research project) Posted in RESEARCH

Human is presumably the only species with the ability to use such a large number of different tools. We often learn how to use certain tools by just observing others using them. What kind of neural mechanisms support such effecient learning? I will explore the neural substrat of "observatory learning of tool use" by combining research measures of behavioural experiments and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The four-year research project has been adopted by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (Grant-in-Aid for Early-Career Scientists). (Ishibashi)
