Outline This lecture course gives comprehensive explanations on and analytical methods of the structure and function of the central nervous system, with a primary focus on the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, and cerebellum, in order to understand higher brain functions at the system level. In the 1st lecture, we will introduce the latest findings on the neural substrates of social cognitive functions, which are mainly obtained from functional MRI studies. In the 2nd lecture, we will introduce in vivo structural analysis using structural MRI. In the 3rd and 4th lectures, we will focus on the anatomical, physiological, and psychological bases/correlates of visual perception. In the 5th and 6th lectures, we will review cortico-basal ganglia-cerebellar mechanisms underlying the control of voluntary movements in physiology and disease. In the 7th lecture, we will introduce genetic approaches to brain functions. Finally, in the 8th and 9th lectures, we will explain cutting-edge approaches, such as mathematical modeling, information theory, complex network analysis, and machine learning, to understand the operating principles of integrative brain functions such as motor and cognitive functions as well as brain disorders.
