The authors of the above study reached similar conclusions stating, “Neurofeedback protocols that train the neural correlates associated with states of focused-attention (such as FM Theta) may aid in the development of cognitive functions such as attention monitoring and metacognitive awareness of when the mind wanders, both of which are considered fundamental for meditation practice as well as for the broader regulation of attention.” … [Read more...] about NeuroMeditation May Improve Cognitive Functions
