On 29 July 2011 The Times of India reported: Students practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique showed improved brain functioning and decreased symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. 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.

'We chose the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique for this study because studies show that it increases brain function. We wanted to know if it would have a similar effect in the case of ADHD, and if it did, would that also improve the symptoms of ADHD,' said principal investigator Sarina J. Grosswald, EdD, a George Washington University-trained cognitive learning specialist.

The study was published recently in Mind and Brain, The Journal of Psychiatry.
