The article features research on this topic, including a study by Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management, and colleagues. Dr Travis explains that the TM technique helps students with ADHD by improving brain functioning. 'From the baseline to six-month posttest, we saw significant increases in coherence in all parts of the brain in four frequency bands: theta (focused inner attention), alpha (sense of self), beta (processing), and gamma (focused outer attention). This shows that the brain is ceasing to function as isolated modules and is beginning to function more as a whole,' Dr Travis said.
