College of Comprehensive Psychology, Professor

I am conducting research on behavioral control. People unconsciously do things that are different from what they intended to do. Making such errors is a characteristic of human beings. We often compare computers with human beings. Since computers perform programs correctly, errors cannot happen unless the program itself has errors. On the other hand, human beings make errors in various situations. I am experimentally researching such errors, especially from the perspective of the relationship between errors and aging. I am often stuck by the extent to which our daily behaviors are controlled by unconscious mechanisms.
