The article features a new study conducted on world-class athletes in Norway that used the Brain Integration Scale developed by Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management. The study found that, compared to normal athletes, those competing at the highest levels have higher levels of brain integration, suggesting that higher psycho-physiological development underlies higher performance.

Conducted by MUM visiting professor Dr Harald Harung and Dr Travis, the study is being published this month in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports. 'These results are very interesting to us, as they show a clear correlation between mind-brain development and peak performance,' Dr Harung said. 'As we have long hypothesized, achieving one's full potential is intimately related to developing one's brain integration.'

The level of brain integration in world-class athletes is similar to that seen in individuals who had practised the Transcendental Meditation Technique for an average of seven years, Dr Harung said.
