It appeared, even though, that almost all of these who accrued in Tokyo at the social gathering of the XIth overseas Congress of Gerontology have been of the opinion that there has been a lot to be won in trying to find interrelationships one of the proof and theories originated within the diversified degrees of investiga­ tion in an try to detect and have fun with the organic drama of senescence as an entity.
