meditationIf you think meditation is a silly health trend, you might want to consider the following findings recently published in the Berkeley Wellness Newsletter.

According to a preliminary study in Frontiers in Psychology, meditation may have brain-protective effects. The study compared compared long-time meditators and non-meditators. Both groups showed age-related atrophy in gray matter on MRI brain scans, but the loss was less pronounced in the meditators; moreover, the atrophy was seen more extensively throughout the brains of non-meditators. The brain’s gray matter is involved in the processing of sensory infor­mation, such as in memory, decision-mak­ing, and emotions. On the other hand, meditators, who show high degrees of discipline and commitment, may simply have healthier habits overall, which can have positive effects on the brain.
