Scientists are exploring the influence of architecture on the human brain, and findings show that the structure of a building has a measurable effect.

New research shows, for example, that EEG becomes slower—indicating more relaxation and less stress—in rooms with higher ceilings. The opposite is true in rooms with low ceilings.

This research on the effect of architecture is in line with principles of Maharishi Vastu or Vedic architecture, which emphasizes the importance of proportion, orientation, and placement to create homes and offices that support health and happiness.

Leading Maharishi Vastu architects would like to see similar research measuring the effects of Maharishi Vastu architecture. They hope to work with researchers such as neuroscientist Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management, who has done extensive research on the effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme on brain functioning.
