New study highlights unique state of 'restful alertness' during Transcendental Meditation
4 April 2018 - Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brain during Transcendental Meditation (TM) practice found that, like meditations that involve focused attention or open monitoring, there was increased activity in the areas of the prefrontal cortex related to attention - indicating alertness. However, unlike other meditations, during TM there was also decreased activity in the areas related to arousal - indicating deep rest. 'This restful alertness is the key to Transcendental Meditation,' said Dr Fred Travis, a coauthor of the study. 'It's a very different kind of rest than sleep. It's rejuvenating and healing, as evidenced by a wide range of clinical studies, while at the same time it allows the person to experience deeper mental states.' The new study is published in Brain and Cognition. (more)
