Global Peace Initiative Translate This Article
26 November 2011
To promote broader acceptance and support within the scientific, public policy, and philanthropic communities, Global Peace Initiative is supporting large-scale, independent, rigorous research on the crime-reducing, peace-promoting impact of this Brain-Based Approach, as well as cutting-edge research on the fundamental physical, neurophysiological and sociological mechanisms that underlie these far-reaching societal effects.
In addition to the reductions in crime and social violence found previously, we anticipate, and will investigate, broader evidence of reduced stress in non-meditating subjects in the vicinity of the peace-promoting groups, including:
∙ increased serotonin
∙ increased alpha EEG coherence
∙ reduced plasma cortisol ('stress hormone')
∙ reduced stress-related illness
∙ reduced alcohol and drug abuse
∙ reduced psychiatric crisis calls
∙ reduced emergency room admissions
∙ reduced other established indicators of societal stress
