Abstract: In recent years, there has been significant uptake of meditation and related relaxation techniques, as a means of alleviating stress and fostering an attentive mind. Several electroencephalogram (EEG) studies have reported changes in spectral band frequencies during Qigong meditation indicating a relaxed state. Much less is reported on effects of brain activation patterns induced by Qigong techniques involving bodily movement. In this study, we tested whether (1) physical Qigong training alters EEG theta and a… Show more

“…The finding of increased fronto-central midline theta activity, and increased posterior alpha activity as shown in previous studies on the dynamic Qigong technique Wu Qin Xi (Henz and Schöllhorn, 2017 ; Henz et al, 2015 ) was replicated in the current study. Similar activations of brain activity are obtained in Liu Zi Jue training.…”

“…From this line of argumentation and on basis of previous studies on the effect of abdominal breathing techniques, we expect a stronger increase in frontal EEG theta activity in Liu Zi Jue than in Wu Qin Xi . From results of previous studies on Qigong meditation and Wu Qin Xi (Henz and Schöllhorn, 2017 ; Henz et al, 2014 , 2015 ) we hypothesize effects in Liu Zi Jue and Wu Qin Xi after 15 min with increases in theta activity in Liu Zi Jue after 30 min compared to Wu Qin Xi .…”

“…DL is demonstrably responsible for brain conditions that differ significantly from those of other learning processes and can thus be used for a wide range of learning areas . Similar findings in meditation research and the field of therapy (Henz and Schöllhorn, 2017) point to the scope of the approach.…”

“…Similarly, Lee et al ( 2015 ) reported increased alpha (in frontal and central regions), but reduced gamma (in central regions) when Tibetan Nyingmapa meditators (CDM-FA) visualized emotional figures in comparison to a baseline condition. Also, Henz and Schöllhorn ( 2017 ) evaluated epochs of resting state in the following conditions: (i) before and after a session of Qigong; (ii) after mentalization of a movement sequence as performed during physical practice; and (iii) after seeing a video of practitioners performing Qigong. Theta and alpha-1 (8–10 Hz) increased after the practice and mentalization in comparison to watching the video, whereas beta and gamma were reduced.…”
