NAKAJIMA Sadahiko

Title
Professor
Research Fields, Keywords
psychology of learning, animal cognition, experimental behavior analysis, human-animal relationships
Research Outline
My major interest lies in psychological processes of learning and memory. With typical laboratory animals such as rats and pigeons, I am doing experimental research on how and what they learn and on the mechanism of behavioral expression.
Another area of my research is "human-animal relations." In the mass media, I am known as a scholar studying facial resemblance between dogs and their owners.
