Attention and Meditation

Cognitive, Affective, & Contemplative Neuroscience Research

There has been a lot of research now supporting the role of meditation in Cognitive processes like Attention, Working memory, and Affect or Emotion Regulation.

1. Here is the link for a report from the NCAAM website reporting on the Attentional Blink phenonmenon and how it may be affected by long-term meditation practice. A 2008 PLoS Biology article from the Davidson lab, by Heleen Slagter can be found HERE.

2. Another article, “Attention regulation and monitoring in meditation”, by the Davidson lab that made the cover of TICS (Trends in Cognitive Science) is a 2008 TICS paper by Antoine Lutz. You can find it HERE.

  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the web without my permission.

    Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off?

    I’d truly appreciate it.

      i just hope people cite the information they use. Ideas are cheap and hard to put ownership on. I am satisfied that people are interested and that it may benefit all beings.
