Dr. Yamamoto received his bachelor's, Master's and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from Keio University (Tokyo Japan). During the Ph.D. program, Dr. Yamamoto was deeply influenced by the Dr. Matt Wilson's work (MIT) and shifted to Computational / Systems Neuroscience. Dr. Yamamoto received his postdoctoral training in the Psychiatry Department at The University of Strasbourg Medical School (Louis Pasteur University, France) and in The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) under supervision of Drs Guy Sandner (until 2000) and Matt Wilson (until 2008). He then worked in the Tonegawa laboratory at MIT as a Research Scientist until early 2017.
Dr. Yamamoto joined the UT Southwestern Medical Center as an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry Neuroscience in 2017.
