Abstract
We have examined 23 teenage males that attended relaxation classes for two years. The subjects practiced two relaxation techniques by doing two different exercises. Each of them had their electroencephalography (EEG) recorded during each exercise. We have detected changes in the electrical activity of their brains, which depended on either of the two exercises done to produce relaxation induction, namely, 1– visualizing images of nature, or 2 – concentrating on the projection of the subject’s own body. The alpha activity reached its peak value of 8 to 9 Hz when doing exercise 1, while brain electricity synchronization in central and occipital areas of the cortex was predominant when doing exercise 2, which indicated that there existed close interaction between visual and somatosensory cortical projections.
