Frederick Travis, Ph.D., is one of the leading researchers in the world on the effects of meditation on brain functioning. He discusses the importance of creating greater brain integration, the basis for seeing solutions rather than problems. He also explores the research that shows how brain integration grows during TM practice and is higher in successful athletes, managers, and musicians, as well as in people reporting experiences of enlightenment.

Dr. Travis is currently the Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi International University. He has published 84 scientific papers, and authored or co-authored four books on the subject. His work has focused on brain development from birth to adulthood, effects of stress on brain functioning, effects of meditation on the brain during and after meditation practice (state and trait effects), the brain patterns of peak performance, and higher states of consciousness.

Mario Orsatti, Executive Director of the Center for Health and Wellness, a division of the David Lynch Foundation, interviewed Ms. Isbin on April 19, 2020.
