Introduction Ken Mogi, Ph.D. Neuroscientist, writer, and broadcaster. Author of A little book of ikigai (Awakening your ikigai in the U.S.) Facebook: Twitter: @kenmogi My mission is to solve the so-called mind-brain problem. I would like to understand how our consciousness full of qualia arise from the billions of firing neurons in the brain. I research in Sony Computer Science Laboratory, Tokyo. I also teach at several universities. I write critical essays on the arts and literature. I was the conceptor for the Qualia Movement of Sony Corporation. I stayed in Cambridge, U.K. for two years to do postdoc. I have published ~ 100 books in Japanese, and The Little Book of Ikigai in English, which is to be translated into 22 languages. I sometimes appear on Japanese television. My given name is Kenichiro (meaning "healthy first son"). So I am formally known as "Kenichiro Mogi". "Ken" is an abbreviation. My favorites are Richard Wagner operas, Yasujiro Ozu films, British Comedy (such as Little Britain, Fawlty Towers and The Office and Father Ted), fine arts (especially the provocatives) among other things.
