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.
