Meditation and the Brain


Dr. Bill Stixrud




Clinical neuropsychologist Dr. Bill Stixrud and neuroscientist Dr. Fred Travis during a Q&A on the subject of meditation and the brain.


I want to welcome you all this evening to this scientific presentation on Transcendental Meditation behavior in the brain. It's been a long time coming. I've been meditating for 45 years. And I have been teaching Transcendental Meditation for 42 years.

And I think anyone who's been meditating how many people here do some form of meditation. That is almost everybody. The interest in meditation has been, you know, steadily not moving much for decades. And oh, you meditate. That's nice. I'm sorry to hear it. For decades, almost. Even though in transcendental meditation, millions of people had learned it over the years. Nonetheless, it hadn't hit the mainstream.
