Transcendental Meditation buffers students against college stress: Study

s (gamma EEG) to attention to one's inner state of well-being (alpha EEG);
  • More appropriate cortical preparatory response, a measure of efficiency of applying mental and motor resources to the task.

    2. Faster habituation to a loud tone as measured by skin conductance response:

    The sympathetic nervous system responds to loud new tones. However, when you hear the noise again, you do not have to respond to it again. The person who is more balanced habituatesstops respondingvery quickly. The person who is more anxious and worried will continue to respond to the tone. This is what was seen in the non-meditating students.

    3. Less sleepiness:

    The posttest was at the end of the semesterone week before Finals Weekthe time of greatest pressure and stress for a student. Those students who practiced TM and regularly experienced the state of restful alertness during the practice were more awake. They reported less chance of dozing in eight common situations, on a standardized sleepiness scale.

    4. Implications of higher scores on the Brain Integration Scale

    Higher scores mean greater frontal coherence, more alpha activity, and better match of brain activation and task demands. Higher scores indicate more optimal brain functioning to support more successful action. High scores on the Brain Integration Scale are correlated with:

    • higher emotional stability,
    • higher moral reasoning,
    • more openness to experience, and
    • decreased anxiety.

    Preliminary research indicates that professional athletes (Norwegian), who won gold in World games and Olympic games, had higher Brain Integration scores. Top-level managers also have higher Brain Integration scores. Thus increasing one's Brain Integration Scale scores can provide a new basis for success, a new foundation to deal with the challenges we face in an ever-accelerating world.
