I'm writing a research paper on an interesting subject, and I need your help!
My thesis goes something like this:
Cycling reaps the psychological and physiological effects of meditation, self-hypnosis, and self induced trance through rhythmic cadence and regulated breathing during prolonged physical exertion.
I'm most interested in the Alpha Waves and Beta Waves that mimic meditative states of mind and altered states of consciousness. I want to approach the subject very scientifically and delve into EEG's and Neurological Effects as well as what exactly happens in the body, during endurance type excercises (cycling) that lets the mind self medicate...
I'm having trouble finding sources and I know that you all are the saviest cyclists in the world, and someone out there can point me in the right direction!
Thank You in Advance,
