This study is a continuation of the project “Selfhood triumvirate” that has been done in collaboration with Dr. Tarja Kallio-Tamminen and was focused on eight spontaneously emerging, brief episodes of vivid altered states of Selfhood (ASoSs) that occurred during mental exercise in six long-term meditators by using a neurophenomenological electroencephalography (EEG) approach. It has been published in the SpringerNature journal Cognitive Neurodynamics. The free read is available here

BM-Science in collaborative partnership with Kalpataru has finalised the project that aims to reveal the secretes of Selfhood. The results are published (see the article) in the Consciousness and Cognition journal.

Recently, a three-dimensional construct model for complex experiential Selfhood has been proposed (Fingelkurts et al., 2016a and Fingelkurts et al., 2016b). The current project aimed to test a direct causative relationship between three phenomenological aspects of Selfhood

BM-Science has partnered with Dr. Helena Hallenberg (Chinese Health) and Dr. Tarja Kallio-Tamminen (Quantum Physics and Philosophy of Science) to conduct a collaborative research study named “Brain QiGong”.

In this longitudinal study, we seek to explore the neural counterparts (measured by the qEEG) underling the effects of complex Qigong training consisting of movements, massage, meditation, and mental visualization. The Qigong training program has been developed with the aim to increase cerebral blood flow, improve brain oxygenation, restore brain resources and balance brain vigilance. Furthermore, it is expected that such program should also improve motor coordination and balance, reduce stress, improve cognitive processes, and clear and soothe the mind. The set of first-person reports will be also collected.
