TM and enhanced brain-wave coherence

Brain coherence
Improved brain wave coherence observed both during and after meditation

This study shows that EEG coherence increases between and within the cerebral hemispheres during Transcendental Meditation.

EEG coherence is a quantitative index of the degree of long-range spatial ordering of the brain waves. The chart on the left shows that for a 2-week meditator, EEG coherence increased during the period of meditation.

The chart on the right, of a 2-year meditator, shows high levels of coherence even before meditation began, spreading of coherence to high and lower frequencies about half way through the meditation period, and continuing high coherence even into the eyes-opened period after meditation.

The broadcasting effect of brainwave coherence

Laboratory research shows that a meditator's brainwave coherence influences other people's brainwave coherence at some distance away. Read more ... It can also influence other people's cortisol and serotonin levels. Read more ...
