Assistant Professor
Mitsuhiko Ishikawa (PhD)

Dr. Mitsuhiko Ishikawa is a recipient of the Kyoto University President’s Award (2020) and JSPS Ikushi Prize (2021, endowment from His Majesty the Emperor Emeritus Akihito).

Research interests

My main research interest is how infants/adults engage in social interactions. Especially, I'm interested in how humans perceive social partner’s gaze information (e.g., direct gaze, gaze cueing) and respond to it (e.g., gaze following). Currently, I focus on action value calculations in social situations for the decision-making of social behaviours. To examine social and reward processing, I use behavioural (eye-tracking) and neurophysiological (EEG, heart rate, pupil) measurements.
