Departamento de Neurología Clínica, Hospital Clínico de San Carlos, Madrid.


Electroencephalographic recording was performed in 11 patients graded by the Silva's Method under basal conditions and under "dynamic meditation". Previous papers showed changes in the EEG of subjects who practice diverse methods of meditation and relaxation. Our results reveal a significant increase in the mean values of the alpha potency in occipital -01, 02- and temporal--T3, T4--areas, while subjects were practicing dynamic meditation.
