Positive Brain Structure Changes

Neuroscience research has demonstrated that, contrary to prior belief, our brains remain "neuroplastic" or changeable, throughout our lives. A growing number of randomized controlled brain imaging studies have shown that mindfulness meditation significantly alters brain structure and function, thereby improving attention, self-awareness, and rationality while simultaneously reducing anxiety, worry, and hostility (Davidson, 2003, 2008; Lazar 2010). While the changes are more pronounced in long term meditators, even short mindfulness trainings have shown to improve performance (Holzel, 2011).

Research has also found regular meditation to slow age-related thinning of the brain such that 50-year old meditators had the same amount of gray matter as 25-year olds in a region of the prefrontal cortex associated with planning and decision making (Lazar, 2005).
