Why did you choose the above major/field?
During my master study, I found out that early and accurate diagnosis of brain diseases is very important to cure the patients such as in cases of Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenrative diseases. I have been exposed to the fragilities of the human brain from a young age. Even though watching the slow deterioration has been distressing, I have also found it very interesting to see how such a complicated organ can be subjected to such large changes due to a degenerative condition, therefore, my desire to study the intricacy and complexities of the brain has substantially increased.
What did you do to prepare for the graduate school entrance examination?
I prepare myself to answer question of various research papers of high impact journals, for examples, by solving the problems in those texts. Increase my English vocabulary by translating words that were new to me.
Is there any changes in yourself since you entered the graduate school?
I felt very fortunate to be a member of such amazing lab. I learnt interdisciplinary skills that is making me an independent researcher and enables me to play an active role in the field of life science in future.
Please tell us about a memorable event in your laboratory.
In my earlier days one of my experiment took around 17 hours to complete. I never worked for such a long time. My sensei is also with me to guide. His presence kept me motivated. That was a memorable day
How do you spend your free time?
On holidays I play badminton and basket ball at university sport hall
Please tell us about your life in Toyama.
I am thankful to Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) for providing me the opportunity to study in Toyama University. Living here as a student make me realize the importance of counting my blessings and seizing opportunities. I mostly spend my time in laboratory, doing experiments, developing my skills and my knowledge in neuroscience. Every day I learn to become more independent. I felt that Toyama is very rich in culture and technology. I have made friendship with Japanese people and also with people of different countries like China, Mongolia, Vietnam, Egypt, Indonesia, and Bangladesh, India and Belarus. What I like most is the nature that surrounds the place where I live, having mountains, rivers and sea and forest on same place makes your day wonderful. I visited Noto island, glass museum, Shirakawago and enjoy a lot there and also discovering all the new food : sushi, tempura, and udon. By living, studying and traveling in various part of Japan, I got closer look at this beautiful country and discovered the oriental beauty lies in every detail of the nation
Do you have a part-time job or a circle activities?
MEXT scholarship enables me to enjoy my student life in Toyama, without taking a part-time job, so that I have plenty of time to work hard on my research, which is why I am grateful for it.
Please give a message to students who are considering going on to the graduate school.
Graduate school aims to foster human resources who can respond to social needs such as welfare of the mankind, advanced medical care and improved living environment in the future. I have learned the joy of studying neuroscience through hands on practice experience, and I am hoping that new students will go through what I have learnt. Wont you study Neuroscience (Cognitive and Emotional) with us, that serves as a corner stone of not only science and technology but also the society. I believe, spending time here would be a wonderful experience for all of you. It is a place where one can develop their intellect and unlock his/her potential for the future.
