Abstract

Meditation is training in the regulation of attention. Focused attention meditation requires focusing one’s attention narrowly on a mantra or one’s breathing. Open monitoring involves being fully aware of all feelings and sensations in the present moment. Both lead to a state of mindfulness. Meditation and mindfulness have been associated with a variety of physiological and executive functions in which this talk will explore!
