NIH Campus, Building 10, Masur Auditorium
On Tuesday, May 3, 2016, 10:00 a.m. ET, the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health will welcome Richard J. Davidson, Ph.D., William James and Vilas Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry Director, Waisman Laboratory for Brain Imaging and Behavior Founder, Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the Waisman Center University of Wisconsin-Madison
This lecture will be broadcasted live via NIH Videocast.
This talk will present an overview of studies conducted in Dr. Davidson’s laboratory on neural changes associated with different forms of meditation. Distinctions among three major forms of meditation practice will be made: Focused Attention; Open Monitoring; and Positive Affect Training. These different forms of meditation have different neural and behavioral effects. From the perspective of Western neuroscience, different forms of meditation can be conceptualized as mental training to promote the regulation of emotion and attention.
This event is supported by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health with generous funding from Bernard and Barbro Osher. The lecture begins at 10 a.m. in Masur Auditorium, Building 10. The lecture is open to everyone at no cost. It will also be videocast on http://videocast.nih.gov.
