Ryoma Hattori, Ph.D.

Assistant Project Scientist, University of California, San Diego

SFARI Bridge to Independence Fellow

Ryoma Hattori is an assistant project scientist at the University of California, San Diego. He received his B.S. from the University of Tokyo and A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard University. He completed his doctoral thesis work in the laboratory of Takao K. Hensch, where he studied the developmental dynamics of multisensory interactions in the mouse visual cortex and related changes in mouse models of autism.

For his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Takaki Komiyama, Hattori has studied the neural mechanisms of reinforcement learning and decision making with two-photon calcium imaging, optogenetics, computational modeling and networks simulations. His postdoctoral research has revealed unique cortical activity dynamics and its plasticity that support reinforcement learning. He plans to examine the possibility that changes in reinforcement learning may underlie the cognitive inflexibility in autism spectrum disorders.
