The study was designed to investigate the influence of the Transcendental Meditation technique on simple reaction time and to compare the relative influence ofTranscendental Meditation and ordinary rest. Two groups of25 college-age subjects were individually tested four times on four days within a two-week period. Group I (meditctors) were tested with 100 trials both before and after a 20-minute session ofTranscendental Meditation (days 1 and 3) and also before and after 20 minutes of supine… Expand
