Lokesh Agrawal - Research Director, IOLEE / AI, molecular biology, technology
"Who I am, is what my brain makes me by subjectively producing my thoughts and gives me a distinct personality. How the brain works had always fascinated me right from my school days. So, I choose cognitive neurosciences for my master’s degree and doctoral research, satisfying my personal desire. Currently, I am a research fellow at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, in Okinawa, Japan. My research interest has been cultivated by in-depth training in converging technologies, integrating nanotechnologies, biotechnologies, information and communication technologies, and cognitive and neurosciences. Till date, I have worked on various projects ranging from the development of artificial intelligence simulation, mathematical modeling of the brain architecture, cavity resonator-based approach to understanding the origin of consciousness , effect of serotonin on brain development and rest state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) based studies for the finding of the emotional motor circuits during the state and trait anxiety. My interest in the molecular correlates of consciousness led me to the experience of the IOLEE intrinsic learning intervention. We received the power to perceive objectively and our brain processes very detailed information to accurately respond to the perceived environment. I personally feel IOLEE is a framework and approach to enrich our understanding of ourselves, enabling us to feel the subtle changes in our body, which govern the singularity of body and mind, which are considered to be two perspectives of the same entity. Therefore, I am interested in investigating the effects of IOLEE's intrinsic learning intervention on our human genetics and celular metabolism, and develop a virtual reality and AI-based software framework for implementing IOLEE based interventions through technology.
