On 27 July 2011 PsychCentral reported: A new study suggests practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) improves brain function and reduces symptoms among students diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The study was conducted over a period of six months in an independent school for children with language-based learning disabilities in Washington, DC, and is published in Mind and Brain, The Journal of Psychiatry. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of education.

Neuroscientist Fred Travis, Ph.D., and other researchers performed electroencephalogram (EEG) tests to measure and record the electrical activity of students' brains as they performed a demanding computer-based visual-motor task. Successful performance on the task required attention, focus, memory, and impulse control.

The study showed improved brain functioning, increased brain processing, and improved language-based skills among ADHD students practicing the meditation technique.
