Functional MRIs and EEGs are used to detect these changes.

Studies have shown that even 8 weeks of mindfulness meditation produced significant increases in left-sided anterior brain activity. This is associated with positive emotional states and thickness of the prefrontal cortex, which is associated with attention. It also had a ‘neuroprotective’ effect on 1,561 genes as well as making the gray matter grow. Grey matter normally reduces as we get older. Research shows that meditators brains are protected from some of the affects of aging. Until recently, it was believed that the brain was hardwired once we reached adulthood. Now we know that the grey matter is constantly changing and meditation makes it larger and denser, meaning where and how we place attention impacts both the structure and function of the brain more >
