BAW Talk | Regulating your Brain: The Science of Mindfulness
Know Science celebrates Brain Awareness Week by inviting you to a talk by Meriah DeJoseph, M.A
Can something as simple as focused breathing drastically change our brains?
Exciting studies in the last decade have shown that practicing mindfulness can bring a variety of mental and physical health benefits. Mindfulness has become the latest trend in today’s society, but what does the research really say about it and why should we care? In this talk, I will describe how and why our brains are wired to regulate our thoughts and emotions, what happens when our ability to regulate fails, and how mindfulness can be used as a tool to maintain self-regulation. We will explore how mindfulness changes the brain across the lifespan and what questions remain to be answered in this burgeoning field.
