A second experimental study during To-ate was carried out following the previous analysis reported in the Journal of ISLIS (Vol.18(2), 2000). Two practitioners were placed in separate rooms and at a time set randomly within 80 seconds (1 trial), one practitioner (sender) emitted qi. The other one (receiver) made a sign with a switch when he sensed the qi. The sender's and receiver's markers were recorded together with their physiological data. In all, 108 trials were done for two days and the receiver's EEGs were analyzed in each 5.12 seconds of four periods; those were, before sending qi, while sending, after sending, and while sensing qi was being received (that is, just before the receiver's marker). At the time of actually receiving qi (while sending), the alpha ratio of the frontal midline (Fz) to the occipital region (O2) was significantly larger than that while sensing (p<0.05). The alpha phase difference between O2 and Fz was distinctly short while sending (vs. while sensing; p<0.0001).
