Debate is an essential component of Tibetan scholastic training. This practice is notable in that it has a specific physical form, and is focused on finding out contradictions rather than convincing the opponent. This study uses a microstate analysis to investigate the development of attention in a debate and explores the differences between the roles of debate. Given that attentional requirements may increase during the debate, a decrease in the prevalence of microstate class D (which is thought to reflect the reflexive and reorienting aspects of attention) was expected. We did not observe any change in the prevalence of microstate class D. We did observe differences in the prevalence of microstate classes between the different roles in a debate. However, this effect may be confounded with the postures of the two debaters.
