Lawson, addressing the issue of raw data disclosure, do peer reviewed 
publications require this? If they do, then I assume Fred's research was fine 
in this regard. If they don't, then should they?

    Eh, Fred has a PhD in Physiology and has published nearly 50 peer-reviewed 
studies on meditation. The fact that he doesn't have a neuroscience dept to run 
doesn't say anything about his research, but is only  about what classes are 
taught at MUM.
He's not a bogus scientist simply because he doesn't run a dept that teaches 
courses in his area of expertise.
Head of a dept at a university is an administrative position, not a teaching 
position.

In regard to Orme-Jonhson, I was sitting near him once and the discussion he 
was having with someone had to do with data from the Maharishi Effect research. 
He mentioned that some other researchers wanted to see the raw data, and it 
seemed he was not going to give it to them, saying 'You know what they would do 
with it'. 
We do indeed know, they'd have a look to see what the hell is going on and blow 
it out of the water if that's what it deserves. Not letting other researchers 
look at what it is you've done to reach your conclusions is the very essence of 
bad science because if it can't be checked there's no reason for anyone to 
believe it. Especially as it's in such a contentious area. 
I do remember reading that they'd refused to hand over raw data before but 
could never find any evidence online, it would have helped in the many 
arguments I've had about the ME research over the years.

Just checking the MUM website, the university does not have a neuroscience 
department. Fred Travis, for example, is a Professor of Maharishi Vedic 
Science, not a professor of a scientific discipline that are researching 
meditation at other universities.

Professor of Maharishi Vedic Science? It's like they don't even want to be 
taken seriously.
