Abstract

3 adept meditators voluntarily inserted steel needles into their bodies while physiological measures (EEG, EMG, GSR, EKG, and respiration) were recorded. Although each adept used a different passive attention technique, none reported pain. During the insertion, 2 of the 3 subjects increased their alpha EEG activity. The role of alpha EEG and its relationship to pain control is discussed.
