Title :  
 Let's discover the connection between brain and mathematics.
 
Abstract :
It is unquestionably the brain that creates and understands mathematics. More specifically, by the interaction among tens of billions of neurons in the brain. Certainly, in the last 60 years or so, understanding of the brain has progressed dramatically. However, "mathematics in the brain" is still surprisingly unknown. In this talk, after explaining the basics of the brain and neurons, I would like to provide some topics for thinking about mathematics in the brain. In addition, I will introduce the problems at the practical level of brain science by giving examples of unique research that I am working on in my laboratory (brain science on bonfire, neurofeedback training on memory, etc.). I hope it will be an opportunity for mathematicians to help me. Why don't you discover the point of contact between the brain and mathematics with me?
