Please click on the following link to read more about 'Restful alertness and the brain—research at the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition'. The article features Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

Dr Travis explains the experience of restful alertness and growth of brain coherence during practice of Transcendental Meditation, and how it is reflected in activity even in a complex computer task.

'What we are finding,' Dr Travis says, 'is that the whole brain is beginning to communicate during Transcendental Meditation practice. It's called ''total brain functioning''. . . . What we're seeing is that the brain pattern of transcending, of inner wakefulness, of alertness, intelligence, creativity, vibrancy, that is beginning to be there more and more even in the middle of a very challenging, demanding task.'

A video interview of Dr Travis speaking on this topic is also featured in the MUM online Video Cafe.
