Simple physical parameters, correlated to human power determinants based on medical and brain science, will be monitored to diagnose and activate the human state at any time. The most suitable stimulus will be applied to the brain directly or through the five senses by controlling living, educational and sports environments and by wearable devices. Such an activation system will cultivate a “SUPER NIPPON-JIN” who always aggressively bring about his or her potential power from children to the elderly. This leads to create an active and self-reliant society.

- 1. Study on human power by medical and brain science
Using specimens of blood and tears, stress biomarkers will be identified and correlated to the stress level. Concurrently via a 7T magnetic resonance imaging and a magnetoencephalography for children, detailed brain functions will be visualized, and thereby human power determinants will be elucidated.
2. Development of monitoring technology for human state diagnosis
New sensing devices will be developed for the quantitative estimation of the stress biomarkers. New algorithmic technologies using wearable sensors and Business Microscope will be developed to diagnose the human state with monitoring simple physical parameters closely correlated to the human power determinants.
3. Development of activation technology for human power.
For the enhancement of human power, it is challenged to stimulate the brain directly or through the five senses by controlling living (music, sleep, etc.) and human (education, sports, etc.) environments as well as by some kinds of wearable devices.
