Part of Fred Travis's PhD thesis was looking at interpersonal EEG coherence. He gave up on trying to replicate his study, I think. His recent discovery that there is an average "ceiling effect" on EEG coherence during TM practice after only a few months of practice may explain why its hard to replicate. However, I ran accross mention of an "instantaneous" coherence EEG algorithm that I passed on to him recently. It's conceivable that while EEG coherence averaged over 40 second intervals maxes out after ony a few months of practice, examining the coherence in much smaller intervals might allow him to reopen the investigation into inter-personal coherence. If he can do THAT, then he's well on the way to finding reliable evidence for the Maharishi Effect within a labratory setting. That means cheaply and with potential for replication by non-TMing researchers, in case you were wondering...
