Meditation Makes Your Brain Stronger
Eileen Luders, one of the UCLA professors who conducted the study, says:
"Meditation, however, might not only cause changes in brain anatomy by inducing growth but also by preventing reduction....That is, if practiced regularly and over years, meditation may slow down aging-related brain atrophy, perhaps by positively affecting the immune system."
"Meditation appears to be a powerful mental exercise with the potential to change the physical structure of the brain at large. Collecting evidence that active, frequent and regular meditation practices cause alterations of white-matter fiber tracts that are profound and sustainable may become relevant for patient populations suffering from axonal demyelination and white-matter atrophy."
Namaste to that!
