Daily practice of the TM technique provides repeated experience of more profound, coherent levels of thought, unfolding the mind’s inner potential, and awakening the brain’s latent resources. Published scientific research shows that this technique uniquely enlivens the function of the prefrontal cortex, often called the “CEO” of the brain, allowing for more organized thought and better decision-making. Furthermore, research has shown that the daily experience of this state of restful alertness leads to increased creativity, improved learning ability, higher IQ, higher moral reasoning, and more efficient brain functioning.
During the TM program, early (sensory) components of the brain’s response to somatosensory stimuli are more widely distributed across the cortex, indicating greater participation of the whole brain in the response to a stimulus.
