When the students were engulfed in funny video clips, their brains produced gamma waves that were similar to the waves produced when one gets into the state of meditation. Alpha waves, which signify rest, were released when they watched spiritual videos, and when they viewed worrisome clips, their brain generated flat waves—like the ones produced when one feels alone and helpless.
