Confirmation of meditation’s impact on the brain

I’ve been keep­ing my head down lately, but I just noticed the fol­low­ing news item that rein­forces the find­ings of more sci­en­tific research into the impact of med­i­ta­tion on the brain:

The unique brain anatomy of med­i­ta­tion prac­ti­tion­ers: alter­ations in cor­ti­cal gyri­fi­ca­tion appeared in mid-​​March and Sci­ence Daily also did an arti­cle, Evi­dence Builds That Med­i­ta­tion Strength­ens the Brain. The work was done at UCLA USC Lab­o­ra­tory of Neuro Imag­ing by Eileen Lud­ers and col­leagues. The LONI’s lat­est news announce­ments show the range of their investigations.

I should also point you to The Mind­ful­ness Research Guide which fol­lows the prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion of med­i­ta­tion to many human are­nas. There is a monthly newslet­ter that has nearly 5,000 subscribers.
