CBD 2018: Neuroscience of Contemplative Practices: Existing evidence and remaining questions
This talk will share some of the existing and new research from the emerging interdisciplinary field of contemplative neuroscience. The goal of this talk is to share our current understanding about how training of contemplative practices (e.g. meditation) affects the brain and behavior. Some of the remaining questions and new directions for research will also be discussed.
Instructor: Manish Saggar, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. He is a computational neuroscientist and directs the Brain Dynamics Lab at Stanford. The overarching goal of his lab is to develop computational methods that would allow for extracting personalized insights about brain’s dynamical organization in healthy and patient populations. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin, where he worked on developing one of the first biophysical network models for understanding how intensive meditation training changes brain dynamics. He is a meditator for more than 20 years and loves to talk about meditation and the brain.
