One-Minute Deep Breathing Assessment and its Relationship to 24-Hour HRV Measurements
Heart rate variability (HRV), the change in the time intervals between adjacent heartbeats, is an emergent property of interdependent regulatory systems that operates on different time scales to adapt to environmental and psychological challenges. Low age-adjusted HRV has also been confirmed as a strong, independent predictor of future health problems in both healthy people and in patients with a wide range of diseases and correlates with all-cause mortality. 24-hour HRV recordings are considered the “gold standard” and have greater predictive power on health risk than short-term recordings. However, it is not always practical or cost effective to obtain 24-hour HRV recordings, and short-term recordings have been widely used in research and clinical applications for many years.

The biological dimensions of transcendent states: A randomized controlled trial
This study evaluated the biological dimension of meditation and self-transcendent states. A convenience sample of 513 participants was drawn from attendees at a 4-day guided meditation workshop. Half were randomly assigned to an active placebo control intervention. All were assessed on a variety of measures, both psychological [anxiety, pain, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), positive emotions, and transcendent states], and physiological (physical functioning). Additional biological assessments including salivary immunoglobulin-A (SIgA), cortisol, and Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG) were obtained from subset of the Experimental group (N = 117). No significant difference in psychological symptoms or positive emotions was observed between Experimental and placebo groups at baseline.

The Large Effects of Brief Meditation Intervention on EEG spectra in Meditation Novices
This study investigated the impact of a brief meditation workshop on a sample of 223 novice meditators. Participants attended a three-day workshop comprising daily guided seated meditation sessions using music without vocals that focused on various emotional states and intentions (open focus). Based on the theory of integrative consciousness, it was hypothesized that altered states of consciousness would be experienced by participants during the meditation intervention as assessed using electroencephalogram (EEG). Brainwave power bands patterns were measured throughout the meditation training workshop, producing a total of 5616 EEG scans.
