Please click on the following link to read more about 'New study: Transcendental Meditation Technique taps into natural brain mode'. The article features a new study published in February 2010, which discovered that people who practise the Transcendental Meditation Technique are able to systematically tap into a natural mode in the brain—a deep level of function that has been identified by scientists.

'An underlying state of the brain called the default mode network has become a hot topic in neuroscience, but scientists hadn't been able to find a way to systematically tap into it,' said researcher Fred Travis, lead author of the study. Dr Travis is Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. 'When I gave a presentation about this study to neuroscientists, they were really interested to hear that this was possible,' Dr Travis said.

While simply closing one's eyes and relaxing increases activity in the default mode, activation in this brain network is higher during practice of Transcendental Meditation.
