On 27 March 2018 HealthImaging reported: Recent research, published in Brain and Cognition, used fMRI* to back up [the assertion that Transcendental Meditation practice offers a state of ''restful alertness''], demonstrating that during TM, the mind is alert, but both the brain and body are in a deep state of rest. 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 fields of science and health.
''The restfully alert state gained during Transcendental Meditation is more than a concept,'' said co-author of the study Fred Travis, PhD, with the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa in a release. ''These blood flow patterns give a physiological picture of the reality of restful alertness in the mind and body.''
