Contents of research

In order to realize a better society where everyone can be healthy and active, it is necessary to change one's behavior in a desirable way for individuals and society in various purposes such as health promotion and acquiring business skills. However, it is so difficult to change individual behavior and make it a habit by oneself. At this organization, we aim to establish induction technologies that can take the first step and become a habit easily by inducing and improving a sense of agency through approaches according to individual characteristics and cognitive feelings. In addition, we will search new research seeds.
