Robert Plotkin, co-founder of the Hack Your Mind series is pleased to invite you to the next event this Friday, October 6th at 12 pm on the campus of MIT.
Join us for the first program of the semester of our Hack Your Mind series with Dr. Susan Gabrieli. Dr. Gabrieli is a neuroscientist and Senior Research Scientist for the McGovern Institute for Brain Research.
From Dr. Gabrieli:
“Mindfulness meditation describes a set of mental techniques to train attention and awareness. Enhancing mindfulness through meditation training is of great interest because it may promote both emotional and cognitive well-being. I will review evidence about how mindfulness meditation changes the structure and function of the adult human brain, how a school-based program changes the brains of children, and how understanding the brain basis of mindfulness can suggest treatments of brain disorders, such as schizophrenia.”
