People have been doing meditation for thousands of years and now researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is trying to find out if it really has any effect on us.
Eight weeks of meditation 41 people were divided into two random groups, where one had to go to weekly meditation and do daily exercises at home. The rest lived as usual, and thus acted as a control group.
After eight weeks of meditation, scientists measured the electrical activity in the anterior part of the brain. As it turned out the meditators group had increased activity on the left side, something you often see when people feel positive and optimistic. Such activity is also associated with reduced anxiety and a general positive feeling state.
Strengthened immune system To test the meditation effect on the immune system, all 41 was given influenza vaccine after the experiment. This means specifically that the immune system reacts, and stock antibody, and thus researchers could see if meditation made any difference.
It did. Both four and eight weeks after the vaccine the group that meditated had a much higher level of antibodies in the blood.
– Although this was a small study, and they have to investigate more on the field to say, the result is very encouraging, said Dr. Richard Davidson, who heads the project. University of Wisconsin-Madison has one of the few communities in the world to research on meditation.
Cooperating with the Dalai Lama The researchers have included collaboration with the Dalai Lama, and he has been one of the world’s foremost practitioners of meditation that now is joining the researchers team. Lama on his side was very interested in the university’s brain-scanning equipment.
The aim of this investigation to determine whether meditation can really be a useful tool in medicine, psychology and education, says the team. Currently, they do surveys on a group of people who meditated regularly for over 30 years.
But the road to knowledge is still long. This first s urvey was just a little test that can provide a more firm conclusion that meditation is healthy, and it looks promising, this is definitely worth further research.
Learn meditation, find enlightenment. Mindfulness is a type of meditation that essentially involves focusing on your mind in the present. To be mindful is to be aware of your thoughts and actions in the present, without judging yourself. Research suggests that mindfulness meditation may improve mood, decrease stress, and boost immune function. Meditation makes you happy and healthy, and is completely free.
