After our society was established in 2002, not only the number of research and researcher in the field of mapping brain function has been increased but also the level of the research has been continuously improved. Based on it, the society is trying to inform the research ability internationally as a country leading to brain research. With our members’ abilities, OHBM(Organization for Human Brain Mapping) which is the most important international conference in the domain of mapping brain function has been facing open on June 2021.
Since the brain controls both mind and body of human beings, the complicated structure and function seem to be more mysterious. We now procure up-to-date technology for mapping the brain function due to rapid development of the technology in modern science. This helps us to study mysteriousness of the normal human brain and further to apply the technology of mapping brain function to diagnosis and treatment of unknown brain diseases. Accordingly, we who are associated with brain function mapping have a responsibility of investigating the brain function and conquering the brain diseases. Unfortunately, we still feel inadequate to accomplish the responsibility.
Because the brain function mapping is interdisciplinary study, many researchers from different study fields have been participating in our society. As an executive team, we would strive for merging the relevant study fields and providing forum for information exchange between the researchers in order to achieve our responsibility. Lastly, we hope that many relevant researchers would join in the task for developing the brain function mapping further with our society.
