Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Brain science and neuroscience are rapidly growing scientific fields where researchers try to understand information processing of the brain and its application to medicine, engineering and other areas. Computational neuroscience is a theoretical field where mathematical, physical and engineering techniques are utilized. Brain decoding is a new tool to map brain signals onto information, which the signals represent, mainly utilizing machine learning algorithms. Real time neurofeedback is combined with the computational and decoding methods, thus leading to a new causal tool in neuroscience and opening up new therapeutic ways.
Recently we have developed a new method called “DecNef” (decoded fMRI neurofeedback) to elucidate information processing of human intelligence from fMRI data. How “DecNef” works. Users regulate their brain activity pattern by themselves and receive information that describes how similar the regulated activity pattern is to the target state. By repeating this procedure, the users can modify their brain activity pattern so that it approximates the target pattern.
