The Research Center for Child Mental Development at Kanazawa University started a decade ago. Currently this research center consists of three divisions: (i) Basic Science and Translational Research, (ii) Clinical Medicine and Social Implementation, and (iii) Integration of Art and Science and Local Community Support for Children’s Mental Health Care.
The main pursuits of these divisions are (i) to elucidate molecular mechanisms for child mental and brain development and generate drugs that modulate social behaviors, (ii) to establish diagnostic systems for autism spectrum disorders based on brain function measurements [e.g., magnetoencephalography (MEG)], and (iii) to develop science-based supporting programs, educational materials, and teacher-training courses.
