Abstract: Objective To analyze and explore the gender-dependent differences of the psychological adjustment induced by baduanjin(eight-trigram boxing) by comparing the total and spatial changes of β1 and β2 electroencephalogram(EEG) power among male and female college students before and after performing baduanjin.Methods College students were recruited as volunteers, and were divided into male and female groups.All volunteers received baduanjin training.β1 and β2 EEG power of two groups was measured and compared with NT9200 electroencephalograph before and after performing baduanjin. The results were collected to analyze the differences of absolute power in two groups before and after baduanjin training. Results General comparison:the absolute power of the β1 and β2 band in the female group was significantly higher than that in the male group before training (P>0.05). The absolute power of the β1 and β2 band increased significantly in the male group after training (P>0.01).There was no significant difference in the female group before training(P>0.05).In addition, there was no significant difference between male group and female group in the absolute power of the β1 and β2 band after training (P>0.05).Spatial comparison:there were significant differences in the distribution of β1 and β2 bands on the EEG between male and female groups before training. Compared with the distribution of β1 and β2 in different groups before training,the distribution of β1 on different groups tended to be consistent after training.The distribution of β2 band presented an increasing tendency on the whole brain region after training, while the female group presented decreasing tendency on most brain regions after training.Function coordination of left and right cerebral hemispheres:compared with EEG before training, the correlation between right and left cerebral hemispheres shown on β1 and β2 band increased significantly or changed from negative to positiv correlation. Conclusion Psychological adjustment may be induced by baduanjin,and it has the effects of removing differences of physiological movement between male and female volunteers. In other words, when students perform baduanjin, mental and physiological movement in brain presents with similar pattern.

Key words: baduanjin, beta band electroencephalogram power, different gender, effect of psychological adjustment
