EEG changes were measured with three masters of different types of qigong and their qi receivers who were waiting for qi at a distance of approximately 4 km from the masters. After a 40-minute resting condition, qi was sent three times during a 40-minute test session. One trial of qi-sending lasted from 5 to 10 minutes. The instruction of 'emit' or 'quit' was given to a sender by an experimenter present at the sender's location. At the receiver's location, neither experimenter nor receiver knew anything but the beginning and the ending time of the test session. After the test, another 40-minute resting period was set and residual effects were examined. As results, alpha waves of the senders and receivers tended to change synchronously for each pair regarding amplitude and peak frequency. However, for neither alpha amplitude nor peak frequency could any significant differences be found between the values during sending and non-sending.
