On 5 May 2011 Science reported: A study conducted by researchers at universities in the US, Norway, and Sweden, shows that the brains of musicians are 'highly developed in a way that makes the musicians alert, interested in learning, disposed to see the whole picture, calm, and playful. The same traits have previously been found among world-class athletes, top-level managers, and individuals who practice Transcendental Meditation.' 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 science.

Researchers Yvonne Lagrosen, Harald Harung, and Fred Travis—from Sweden's University West, Norway's Oslo University College, and Maharishi University of Management in the United States, respectively—found a correlation between these traits, brain development, and potential for outstanding achievement.

EEG measurements showed that people with high brain development had good coordination between the frontal lobes, which are associated with 'planning and logical thinking', as well as a predominance of alpha brainwave activity, which 'occur[s] when the brain puts together details into wholes', the article reported.

Questionnaires also revealed a high level of moral reasoning, and frequent occurrence of 'peak experiences'—explained in the article as 'an intense feeling of happiness and harmony and of transcending limitations'.
