Increased Gamma Brainwave Amplitude Compared to Control in Three Different Meditation Traditions

Fig 4

A. Spectral differences in the 60–110 Hz range between the control group and each of the meditator groups with MED and IMW conditions combined. A black dot at a given electrode site indicates significance at p<0.05 corrected for multiple comparisons (see Method). B. Spectral differences in the 60–110 Hz range between the Control group and each of the meditator groups during MED condition only. A black dot at a given electrode site indicates significance at p<0.05 corrected for multiple comparisons (see Method). C. Distribution of individual median 60–110 Hz activity over parieto-occipital electrode for combined meditation and IMW conditions in each group. D Median gamma power over parieto-occipital electrodes for the combined meditation and instructed mind-wandering conditions in the three meditator groups, as a function of log-scaled estimated hours of lifelong meditation practice (skipped Pearson’s r = 0.33, confidence interval (CI) = [0.06 0.53]). The grey shaded area shows the 95% bootstrapped CIs. A red dot denotes an outlier that was left out from the computation of the robust correlation analysis whereas the ellipse surrounds the data points included in it.
