Cognition, Sense-Making and Biophysical Skills(CB)


 Yuji Ohgi 
Professor, Program Chairperson

We move, feel, and live in our daily life by constantly working our brains and bodies together. We use our bodies and language as mediums to express ourselves and interact with others, creating vivid sensations and emotions to form the foundation of human individuality, intelligence, sensitivity, and sociality.

In this way, it can be understood that what paints our abundant day to day experiences are diverse interactions, occurring between the body and mind, the conscious and unconscious, people and the environment, the self and others, and the virtual and real.

The CB Program examines the science of interactions observed in people and/or society, which will and how they contribute to the future of education, medicine, sports, art, and culture. We accomplish this by removing the academic boundaries such as those between things like humanities and sciences, quality and quantity, foundation and application, and theory and practice, and by combining the methodologies of each individual field. Let's us create the future of knowledge together.
