I graduated from Nagoya City University Medical School in Japan. Then, I started training as a Neurosurgeon. I also graduated from Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences where research was on ischemic brain edema and intracranial pressure. I was a Senior Registrar, of Department of Neurosurgery, the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurological surgery, Queen Square, London from 1992-1993, under Professor Lindsay Simon. I was also a Visiting Research Fellow, Institute of Neurology, Queen Square, London. During that period, I worked with Mr. Laurence Watkins (Current Professor, University College London Hospital). On returning to Japan, I started research into hydrocephalus and CSF flow using MRI. Now, I have Board and Instructor of The Japan Neurosurgical Society, Japanese Society on Surgery for Cerebral Stroke, The Japan Stroke Society, The Japanese Society of Neuroendovascular Treatment, Japanese Society of Neuroendscopy, and The Japan Society of Neurotraumatology. I am a president of Japan Society of Hydrocephalus and CSF. Recently, I am very interested and continuing research in water turnover in brain and CSF and CSF physiology.
