Abstract
To investigate the effects of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) “Qigong state” on the EEG of anxious college students, 72 college students were randomly divided into an experimental group and a control group. The experimental group underwent a 2-month TCM Qigong static exercise which the control group remained in its original state. This work firstly analyzed the EEG of the experimental group and the control group in different states, and then discussed the significance of “Qigong state”, finally found the students of the experimental group showed the advantage of θ wave and δ wave of EEG after the intervention of “Qigong state”; the EEG β wave occupied a clear advantage in the control group after sitting and resting; the difference in EEG between the experimental group and the control group was concentrated in the δ wave before and after the experiment; the approximate entropy index of the two groups of subjects showed an increasing trend compared with anxiety work after the experiment, but the experimental group was significantly higher than the control group. So the brain electrical activity in the “Qigong state” of TCM tends to be more synchronized, coordinated, and orderly, indicating that the regulating effect of “Qigong state” on the central nervous system is more significant than that of sitting-resting, which can promote the recovery of brain function.
