Abstract
Allocortical structures such as hippocampal formation and amygdala are involved in the emotions and memory, and regarded as the seat of personhood. Human body is a composite of a biological organism and an intellective soul. It was suggested that cerebral allocortex is the main region harboring the soul and the beginning of a human person as an individual living organism is at the 13th week of development when an adult type allocortex is already formed.
No experimental data can be sufficient to bring us to the recognition of a soul, but there must be a substance as the basis of personal identity, for without space-occupying substance, there would be no way to account for the soul’s ability to interact with the body. It was suggested that the soul substance consists of cosmological dark matter. The dark matter constitutes most of the mass in our universe, but its nature remains unknown. The soul is likely to work into man’s physical body directly via that dark matter. We thought that while the soul has a material component as dark matter, there must be an open window to the brain for the entrance of the soul with dark matter.
In this respect, vomeronasal organ which is found in the nasal cavity and which has connections with the brain only between the 12th and 14th weeks of human development - a period including the time of ensoulment at 13th week - seems to be the most appropriate window through which the soul and dark matter can enter the brain.

Key words: Allocortex; Dark matter; Ensoulment; Vomeronasal organ
