You can enjoy your study in Humanics.
After completing my Master's course in Medical Science, I was looking for an environment where I could concentrate on my research, and decided to enter Humanics.
In my master's program, I recorded single unit neural activities, and estimated their roles to investigate the decision-making process. At the same time, however, I realized that it is not enough to understand, but it is necessary to organize it as a whole system (i.e., mathematical model). I am now studying unconscious processing, which accounts for the majority of decision-making process, and I want to clarify the mechanism of decision making from both experimental and theoretical perspectives.
At the beginning of this program, I was worried about whether I could keep up with the classes on informatics, but it turned out to be surprisingly fun when I considered the relationship between the classes and my own research. Discussions with my sub mentor (Dr. Izawa) and the QE reviewers are also very exciting because I can get opinions that I cannot easily get from discussions in the same lab. I believe that interacting with different fields will help me think about my own research from a different angle and lead to new ideas. In addition, because of the excellent financial support, I am less worried about the financial aspect, and I feel that I can concentrate on my research more than before.
I think the Humanics is one of the best programs for students who have a clear idea and want to focus on their research.
