Research on meditation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Research on the processes and effects of meditation is a growing subfield of neurological research.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Modern scientific techniques and instruments, such as fMRI and EEG, have been used to see what happens in the body of people when they meditate, and how their bodies and brain change after meditating regularly.[2][7][8][9][10] These studies have shown substantial bodily changes as a consequence of regular meditative practice, for instance one study by Richard Davidson and Jon Kabat-Zinn showed that eight weeks of mindfulness-based meditation produced significant increases in left-sided anterior brain activity, which is associated with positive emotional states.[11] It seems that we are able to think of positive emotion as a skill which can be achieved with training similar to learning to ride a bike or play the piano.[12]

Since the 1950s, 3,000 studies on meditation have been conducted and yet many of the early studies had multiple flaws and thus yielded less conclusive data.[13][14] More recent reviews have pointed out many of these flaws with the hope of guiding current research into a more fruitful path.[15] One report assessed that further research needs to be directed toward the definition of meditation – a clear conceptual definition of meditation being required.[13]

Meditation has been practiced within religious traditions since ancient times, especially within monastic centers. These days there also exist many secular programs in the West including mindfulness-based programs.[16] Today mindfulness-based meditative practices have become popular within the Western medical and psychological community, due mainly to the observable, positive impact such processes have on patients suffering from stress-related health conditions.[17]
