Mindfulness starts with the body: the neuroscience of meditation and tai chi
Our lab investigates mindful body awareness as an “active ingredient” in mindfulness meditation, Tai Chi and other mind-body therapies.
The goal of our investigations is to discover whether brain rhythms underlying body awareness and movement are actively modulated by mindfulness and Tai Chi. Understanding how these therapies work will allow us to optimize training in conditions such as aging and chronic pain/functional disorders where these approaches have shown the clearest therapeutic benefit.
