CURRENT POSITION
August 2008 – present
Research associate, Department of Psychology and Brain Sciences,
Indiana Univ., USA. With Prof. Cary Lai.
PREVIOUS POSITIONS HELD
2008- present
post-doctoral fellow, Department of Psychology and Brain Sciences, Indiana Univ.,
USA.
I am collaborating on the study on the behavioral analyses of cowbirds. With Prof.
Meredith West and Dr. Andrew King
2005 – 2007
post-doctoral fellow, Indiana Univ., Dept. Chemistry, Bloomington IN USA.
I was collaborating on the development of microfluidic-based chemical delivery
systems to study the response of mice sperm cells and bacteria, Caulobacter
crescentus, to chemicals delivered with high spatial and temporal precision in
microfluidic devices. With Prof. Stephen C. Jacobson
2003 -2005
Senior Research Associate, Indiana Univ., Dept. Chemistry, Bloomington IN USA.
I was collaborating on a project identifying chemicals which are MHC gene related
in mice. With Prof. M. Novotny
1995 -2003
Post-doctoral Researcher, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.
I investigated the influence of male social status and female odors on sperm
activities and sperm density in mice. Odors of dominant males were found to
influence sperm activity of subordinate male mice and female odors were found to
influence sperm density of male mice. With Prof. Shinji Kamimura
1991-1995
Visiting Scientist, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.
I investigated the influence of social status and social isolation on the social
behavior of male mice. Male mice were found to change their behaviors according
to their social status and the social status of the mice they encountered. Socially
isolated mice were found to lack such differences of behavior depending on social
status of the mice they encountered and learning process was suggested to be
necessary. With Prof. Takeji Kimura
1985-1991
Senior Research Associate, Dept. of Psychology, Tokyo Woman’s Christian
University, Tokyo, Japan.
I conducted studies on the influences of social status and social isolation on the
behaviors of male laboratory mice. I also conducted studies on the reproductive
behavior of small Japanese field mice (Apodemus argenteus) and the physiological
and behavioral growth of small Japanese field mice by establishing a breeding
colony in laboratory animal facility. This was the first record in Japan of breeding
small Japanese field mice, which is known to be very difficult to breed in captivity.
Nobody else could establish a breeding colony after this either. I also conducted
studies on the food storing behavior of varied tits (Parus varius) and food searching
behavior of Japanese rat snakes (Elaphe climacophora). I also conducted studies
on the learning behavior of Japanese monkeys (Macaca fuscata). With Prof.
Noriyoshi Nitta.
SELECTED RESEARCHES OF MINE CONDUCTED UNTIL PRESENT
(1) I found that sperm activities of mice are different depending on the social status. Dominant male
mice showed higher sperm activity compared to subordinate male mice. The differences
diminished when the vomeronasal organ of the subordinates was destroyed, which suggested
that the differences were mediated by the pheromone from dominant male mice. The results
also suggested that males’ pheromones affected males’ sperm maturation, and not
spermatogenesis.
(2) I found that sperm density of male mice is higher when males were exposed to soiled bedding of
female mice. Influences of females’ soiled bedding were also different depending on the housing
conditions of females, which suggested that some pheromones which changed their secretion
depending on females’ housing condition affected males’ sperm density. The results also
suggested that females’ pheromone affected males’ spermatogenesis.
(3) I developed microfluidic devices which are useful in the observation of sperm activities and
movement studies.
(4) I developed a portable microscope with built-in thermoplate in collaboration with P-Tech Co.
(Osaka, Japan), which is convenient to use in the observation of sperm activities in outdoor field
studies.
(5) Utilizing the methodology of animal learning on the investigation of preferences toward odors in
mice, I found that n-nonanal attracts male mice. N-nonanal was detected in the soiled bedding
from female mice by GC/MS analyses, in collaboration with Sumika Life-Tech Co. Ltd., Japan, and
I made a Y-maze with brief wind to bring the odor to the starting box where the mice was first put.
The concentration which attracted mice most was also determined. The results were
summarized and we applied for a patent from Sumika Life-Tech Co. Ltd. The names included in
the application of the patent are Prof. Shinji Kamimura, University of Tokyo, Shinobu Kawamoto,
Sumika Life-Tech Co. Ltd, other than my name. Patent application number: JA03046
(6) I have the record as the first person to successfully breed and keep colonies of long-tailed field
mice (Apodemus argenteus) under laboratory condition in Japan. Apodemus argenteus is a wild
mice species which has its habitat only in Japan.
(7) I studied the social play behavior of Japanese monkeys in field and clarified that social play is not
randomly taking place but there is a relationship between the play-mates and their social statuses,
genders, and the closeness of their family relationships. Social statuses of Japanese monkeys
were found to affect the top-bottom position in the rough-and-tumble play behaviors (individuals of
higher social status tended to be more on the top position) and there were also differences
depending on sex (males played more than females).
(8) I studied the influences of housing conditions and social statuses on the social behavior of male
mice. Mice reared in isolation showed abnormalities in their social behavior, which suggested
that mice need to learn the way to communicate through social experiences. The behaviors of
mice were also largely influenced by the social statuses. Complexity and space of the cages
also influenced aggressiveness of male mice. These results were also utilized in the
development of housing conditions in keeping wild mice in lab conditions and compared with the
success in breeding and longevity under laboratory conditions.
(9) I studied the history of keeping small birds as pet and also studied the history of training tricks to
small birds in Japan. The study was published as a book in 1999, which received more than 10
reviews in major newspapers and magazines and journals. The book was also used in entrance
examination by a university (Kaetsu University) in 2007. This book is one of the very rare books
on aviculture in the world.
RESEARCH INTERESTS
I am interested in:
(1) The influence of social relationships on behavior and reproductive activities in animals.
(2) The influence of pheromone on social behavior, hormone secretion, and reproductive
activities of animals including human.
(3) The influences of the strength of sperm competition on sperm activity, % of abnormal
sperm, and sperm density.
(4) The history of animals in human culture.
Other than these study projects above, I am always willing to expand my interest and start new
study projects with colleagues.
TEACHING EXPERIENCES AND INTERESTS
I have experiences of making lectures on the following topics:
(1) Animal behavior, communication in animals: I made lectures about the morphological
characteristics of animals, their sensory organs, and their relation to the communication system, for
example, about chemical communication (olfactory sense and pheromone), communication using
visual sight (visual sense, signals used as visual sight), and acoustic communication (hearing and
voice producing).
(2) Animal learning, animal intelligence: I made lectures about the classification of the types of
learning (classical conditioning, operant conditioning, modeling, etc) and their characteristics, and
mechanisms. I also talked about the application of learning techniques in the studies on animal
physiology and behavioral ecology.
(3) Animal behavior and animal welfare: I taught the mechanisms of animal learning and its
application to the improvement of the zoo environment or pet-owner and pet relationships. I also
taught about the influences of housing conditions on animal behavior and stress.
(4) History of human-animal relations: I made lectures about the history of animals in human
culture, the images of animals and its relation with religion and economical background of the culture
(agricultural or hunting-gathering) in ancient days.
Teaching interests other than those listed above:
(1) I have been using domesticated animals (lab mice and rats and poultry) and wild animals (wild
mice and wild birds in main) in lab conditions in main (except in the study on Japanese monkeys).
My main study subjects have been the social behavior in mammals, especially the chemical
communication, social relationships, and reproductive activities. I am enthusiastic in teaching
the general frameworks of the studies on these subjects and also in teaching how to conduct
researches on these subjects.
(2) From the experience of breeding and keeping small wild mice in captivity, I am enthusiastic in
teaching the development and improvement of housing conditions of small mammals in captivity,
not only from the view point of animal welfare but also from the view point of efficiency in breeding
or in keeping animals in good condition, which is related to animal welfare in long term.
(3) From both of the experience of field work on the social behaviors of Japanese monkeys and
observations of social behaviors of mice in lab, I am interested in teaching how to conduct
behavioral observations in laboratory, in zoo, and in the field.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE
2007
Guest lecturer, Indiana University, Department of Biology, IN, USA
I made a lecture on olfactory communication in animals in animal behavior course (Z460:
Instructor Prof. Laura Hurley). It was an introductory course in animal behavior for undergraduate
students studying biology. The number of students was ca 30. The class was one day, 74 min.
Students were assigned to write comments and questions and were graded by them.
2006
Lecturer, Gifu University, Gifu, Japan
Lectures on olfactory communication in animals. I made lectures to graduate students studying
animal sciences. The number of graduate students was ca 15. The class was one semester
class concentrated into 2 days (15 lectures). Students were assigned to write comments and
questions and were graded by them.
1997 -2003
Lecturer, St. Paul University, Tokyo, Japan.
Lectures on animal behavior and behavioral physiology. I had one class/week each semester
(in Japan there are 2 semesters/year and one class is 90 minutes). The class was for
undergraduate students from freshmen ~ senior. The number of students of each class
varied but usually it was around 100 ~ 150 students. Students were assigned to write
comments and questions each time and I listed up all the questions and comments in a paper,
handed out the printed paper to the students at the next week’s class, and added comments in
detail to the interesting comments and questions at the beginning of the class. This
“comments and question and answers” time worked well to motivate students to think about
the theme I talked in the class. Grading was based on the results of exam at the end of
semesters.
1996 -2003
Lecturer, Saitama University, Saitama, Japan.
Lectures on animal behavior and behavioral physiology. I had one class/week each semester
and the number of students for each class was from 150 ~ 200. Grading was based on the
results of exam at the end of semesters.
1992-2003
Lecturer, Yamazaki College of Animal Health Technician.
I had classes for the freshmen and junior and I mentored seniors class of writing thesis.
Lectures for the freshmen were introductory course on animal behavior and the lectures for the
junior were about human-and-animal relationship, animals in human culture, learning in
animals (its basic mechanism and application to domestic animals, e.g. dogs). Number of
students varied by year, but usually 7~8 classes of 50 students/class per semester. Number
of students I mentored to write up theses was totally 15 during 1992-2003. The grading was
based on the results of the exams conducted at the end of the semester for the freshmen and
juniors, and by the thesis for the seniors.
2002
Lecturer, Tokyo Gakugei University, Tokyo, Japan.
I made lectures on animal behavior and behavioral physiology.
The topics on animal
behavior were, for example, communication (visual, chemical, acoustic), learning in animals,
mechanisms of learning. I had a class during one semester and the number of students was
ca 20. The grading was based on the results of the exam at the end of the semester.
1987 -1992
Lecturer, Tokyo Woman’s Christian University, Japan.
I had one class each semester and I made lectures on animal behavior and behavioral
physiology, and animal learning. I also taught training course of experiments using animals
(Japanese monkeys, rats, and mice). The numbers of students were from 15~20 per
semester (per class). The grading was based on the report about the experiments at the
training course and on the report of the theme I provided around the end of the semester.
1990
Lecturer, Azabu Veterinary University, Japan.
I made lectures on the general topics in psychology. The number of students was around 200
and the lectures were 1 class/week for one semester. The grading was made based on the
results of exam at the end of the semester.
1987 -1988, 1992 -1997
Lecturer, Seitoku University, Chiba, Japan.
I made lectures on the general topics in social psychology. The number of students was
different depending on the year, but ca 400 on average, i.e., ca 4 classes (100 students/class),
per semester. The grading was based on the results of exam at the end of semester.
1985 –1991
Japan.
Instructor, Department of Psychology, Tokyo Woman’s Christian University, Tokyo,
I mentored 30 students to accomplish their studies to submit bachelor degree theses, teaching
from establishing experimental design, ethical use of animals, collecting data, data analyses,
and writing up theses. I also worked on the animal facility management.
