We have suggested 'meridian points - the nervous network theory' so as 'meridian points' and 'meridians and collaterals' (used in Oriental Medicine) phenomena. As experiments to support this theory, we studied brain tomography when the 'Hibiki'-Resonance effect was obtained, using the technique of f-MRI, which can observe the brain function. Also, several papers have recently appeared, which applied the technique of f-MRI to acupuncture as we did in our project. These are summarized here with respect to our theory.
