Access to the Visiome platform website dramatically increased during the May 13-14 period, with a total number of 939 page views. This sudden increase was due to views of the “Right Pointing Arrow” illusion video, created by Professor Kokichi Sugihara of Meiji University. The Visiome platform provides a downloadable version of this video and the topic seems to have been picked up by various websites through SNS. The video was also awarded a prize at the 8th Illusion Contest in Japan (FY2016), sponsored by Dr. Akiyoshi Kitaoka of Ritsumeikan University, also a Visiome platform committee member.
We are happy to announce that a book "Creating insect brains" edited by Dr. Ryohei Kanzaki (the University of Tokyo), the chairperson of CNS-PF, has been published by Asakura Shoten on April 25, 2018. The book is in Japanese. https://www.asakura.co.jp/books/isbn/978-4-254-10277-2/
