特集号「人間の時間知覚」(投稿受付中)

This Collection of Scientific Reports focuses on the malleability and fluidity of human time perception. Specifically, why the perceived temporal order of events, as well as their duration, can be easily affected and distorted by various factors, including emotional states, feelings of control, or perceived causality. This Collection welcomes research providing insight into this malleability, as well as that which explores individual differences in time perception, in both the neurotypical population, as well as individuals with psychiatric disorders, in which imprecise or atypical patterns of temporal processing might be a feature of the disorder or an underlying reason for other symptoms. The Collection Guest Editors are Elena Gheorghiu, Hirohito Kondo, and Ana Pinheiro.

特集号「視聴覚の情景分析」(2017年2月掲載)

The Special Issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Socciety B covers advances on scene-analysis research with a combination of psychophysics, neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and computational modelling and presents new directions in empirical and theoretical approaches. For an integrative understanding of scene analysis beyond sensory modalities, we have collected contributing articles from 20 Principal Investigators (research topics). The collection of articles compares recent findings in auditory and visual scene analysis. The issue was edited by Hirohito Kondo, Jun Kawahara, Anouk van Loon, and Brian Moore and published in February 2017.

CNRS-NTT 合同セミナー(2016年6月)

The seminar, entitled "Theoretical and Experimental Approaches Towards Auditory Scene Analysis", was held at the Château de Bourron-Marlotte Fontainebleau in France. The closed meeting was organized by Daniel Pressniter (CNRS) and Hirohito Kondo (NTT) in June 2016 and supported by JSPS Bilateral Programs. More than twenty researchers, including postdocs and PhD students, participated in this seminar to build an integrated theory of auditory scene analysis from findings of different disciplines. Each participant gave a 30-min presentation on his/her research theme. The presentations covered a wide range of topics including psychophysical, neuroimaging, neurophysiological, and mathematical modeling studies. The lectures contained unpublished data, which led to a lively question and answer session. The participants spent all three days in a suburban facility outside the bustle of Paris, which fostered in-depth discussion outside of the scheduled program. We will continue to actively support young researchers and promote information exchange for collaborative research.
