Mitsuho IKEDA 

My main field is Central America. I have been researching indigenous movements among the Maya people in both southern Mexico and Guatemala. I am also investigating multiple interactions among science, echnology and culture of natural sciences, in particular between neurophysiologists and experimental animals, and the ontological aspects associated with animal scientists and wildlife in modern society. From end of 2014 I have started my anthro-zoological project on the interaction between animals (both wild and domestic) & zoologists.
