6 March 2012

University students who learnt the Transcendental Meditation Programme showed significant improvement over a 10-week period on a Brain Integration Scale comprising several EEG measures during task performance, in contrast to students randomly assigned to learn later.

Components of the Brain Integration Scale on which improvement was measured included increased broadband frontal EEG coherence and more efficient preparatory brain responses to stimuli.

Students who learnt the Transcendental Meditation Technique also displayed decreased sleepiness and faster habituation to stressful stimuli in comparison to controls.
