It's been awhile since my last post and wanted to touch base. This site is on the back burner, but it's not out of my mind. I've got less time these days to 'science' but I'm still piecing together the 2nd paper. Hopefully by the end of August I'll be able to commit more time to this.
Read some more articles/papers on meditation and it's positive effects recently; if you haven't tried it yet I highly suggest it!
From the article:
The paper describes how meditation affects a subject’s ability to change brain activity in the posterior cingulate cortex (PCC). Given the chance to observe real-time feedback on their PCC activity, some meditators were even able to control the levels of activity there.
“You can observe both of these phenomena together and discover how they are co-determining one another,” Santoyo said. “Within 10 one-minute sessions they [participants in a meditation study] were able to develop certain strategies to evoke a certain experience and use it to drive the signal.”
