The project 'Study on Analyzing methods of Human Body Functions Using Various Simultaneous Measurements (VSM)' was started in the Bio-Emission Lab., Div. of Radiation Research, National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), Science and Technology Agency(STA) of the Japanese Government. VSM systems were used to measure the physiological state emitting qi during qigong. Results from separately analyzing each measurement item of RSP (ReSPiration), PPG (PhotoPlethysmoGram), GSR(Galvanic Skin Response), EEG (ElectroEncephaloGram), showed periods of RSP and PPG lengthened, the GSR value increased and a peak appeared, and when alpha wave amplitude increased when emitting qi during qigong as compared to at rest. Moreover, each item was analyzed together, even at the time of emitting qi during qigong, a certain change occurred in the subject. The periods of RSP and PPG became short. GSR decreased. The alpha wave amplitude decreased. This was the result of the whole human body having a synchronization. The difference between emitting qi during qigong and at rest, and moreover the change while emitting qi during qigong, were measured.
