Greetings from the Conference President

Masanari Itokawa
Deputy Director of Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of
Medical Science


I have been involved in brain research for over 30 years. Despite my whole-hearted research, I still couldn't find any mental illness.

As a result, I realized that the mind has a part made up of the brain and a part that does not. Medication works on the former, and psychotherapy and care/appreciation work on the latter. And I began to realize that there might be another mind that wasn't either of these.

I'm a scientist, so I don't have the words to describe it. I guess that yoga, Pure Land Buddhism, and oriental philosophy probably have words that indicate this.

At the conference, I would like to discuss these three things: things, things, and things that are neither (if I dare say it, the soul).
