Figure 2

A plot of Post-Treatment PVT Reaction Time versus Pre-Treatment PVT Reaction Time for our four treatments. The treatments that included meditation, M and SD+M, showed faster post- than pre-treatment reaction times; whereas, the reverse was true for the C and N treatments. The M and SD+M treatments have a shallower regression slope than the two treatments that do not include meditation, C and N (F 1,27 = 12.610, p < 0.002).
