Concurrent with the performance of hathayogic exercises such as Nauli, Bhastrika and Suryabhedana, three characteristic EEG patterns were identified: a "wicket" rhythm at a frequency wave of 12 to 17 Hz, recordable from para-Rolandic areas, which we have called Xi rhythm; a 26-33 Hz sinusoidal activity, confined to the mid-sagittal parietooccipital region; and paroxysmal activity localized in the lateral boundaries of parieto-temporo-occipital regions, bilaterally. - The expectation that hathayogic exercises would affect the electrical activity of circumscribed, relatively well defined areas of the brain was based on the fact that these exercises imply a strong stimulation of somatic and splanchnic receptors, the afferent impulses of which are fed into specific cortical representation areas localized for the most part around central and anterior parietal areas.
