Effect of Super-Brain Yoga on the Concentrating Ability of Students
Keywords:Cerebral asymmetry, d2 test, Super-brain yoga.
Introduction: Frontal and parietal association areas form the neural basis of concentration as evidenced
by cellular studies of posterior parietal cortex in monkeys. Cerebral asymmetry, an evolutionary
consequence,enhances brain output by synchronizing both hemispheres for maximal brain output facilitated
by Super-brain yoga - a simple,effective technique to energize and recharge the brain, assessed with d2 test
measuring attention, scanning and mental flexibility.
Aim: To assess the effect of Super-brain yoga on the concentrating ability of students by d2 test.
Materials and Method: 184 school children aged 11-13 yrs, physically fit & unaware of Super-brain yoga
formed the study population.
Methodology: (1) d2 test consisting of: (i) TN: total number of characters (ii) E1: number of characters
omitted (iii) E2: the number of errors (iv) CP: concentration performance CP = (TN–E2) was performed
before and after Super-brain yoga to assess students concentrating ability. (2) Super brain yoga/yogic squats
performed for 1 month.
Results: ‘p’ value < 0.05 statistical significance with paired ‘t’ test.
Conclusion: Practicing Super-brain yoga for 1 month increased the concentrating ability of students.
