Elucidating the operating principles of the brain is very important for an essential understanding of the human mind. We approach this critical task using several techniques, including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), which enables the visualization of neuronal activity at the whole-brain level. Using these techniques, we investigate the operating principles of the brain, in regard to various higher cognitive functions, on several time/spatial scales so as to achieve a comprehensive elucidation of the mechanisms of the brain.
