It is conducted by a team of investigators with two heads: Prof. José Luis González Mora, chief of fMR (functional Magnetic Resonance) in La Laguna University, and Prof. Luis de Rivera, ISATAP President.

During the first months of 2016 was the Design Period, in 23-27 May there was the Data Capture Period, in which the brains of 14 volunteers, most of them ISATAP Members, were scanned with fMR while practicing Autogenic Training.

During the experiment, the volunteers lived in two pretty houses facing the sea in paradisiac Tenerife Island, and had a lot of time to talk about our passion: Autogenics.

Now is underway the Data Analysis Period… And we are excited about the results because this type of research has never been made before with Autogenics. We’ll continue to keep you informed!

We are glad to announce the Course to be taught by ISATAP President Prof. Luis de Rivera, next 24 of June (whole day) in Torino, Italy, with the name Autogenic Meditation (advanced technique). It's Organized by Prof. Luciano Palladino, Board Member of ISATAP, and Director of Progetto Divenire, the Center accredited by ISATAP where the Course will be held.

For those participating in the TABS project next week in Tenerife, we have produced an audio for practising. It includes both scanner sound and guidance words by Prof. Dr. Luis de Rivera in one single file.

Its purpose is to getting you used to what you will actually find in the real experiment.

Words by Luis are in Spanish.

During the III Symposium of the Sociedad Hipnológica Científica, Prof. Luis de Rivera will deliver a lecture on Meditation, Mindfulness and Autogenics.
