The authors previously reported on the temperature decrease of the tip of a finger when the subject concentrated on emission of energy. In this research, the authors paid attention to the skin surface temperature change by this concentration exercise, and measured temperatures of the hand surface by thermography in order to clarify the correlation of consciousness and living body functions. The drop of the skin surface temperature during consciousness and increase of the skin surface temperature during relaxation were observed.
