For those who need science to validate that mindfulness is worth the time, this article is for you

Blair Kettle's curator insight, November 9, 2013 2:06 AM

A great book to read to get broader insight into brain plasticity and the growing body of science behind it is The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science by Norman Doidge. Mindfulness meditation and other psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy are proving to be powerful tools for reshaping thinking processes and, it seems, the entire range of cognitive function.

 

Neurologist V.S. Ramachandran (and others) have made significant contributions to brain plasticity research knowledge through his work with amputees. His March 2007 TED talk is highly worth the 23 minutes it takes to watch it. http://www.ted.com/talks/vilayanur_ramachandran_on_your_mind.html
