Cognitive Neuroscience of Mindfulness

Dr. Philippe Goldin | 48:54


Hi everybody. Uh, welcome. Today I'm here. Uh, my name's Peter Allen. I'm the director of Google University, and I'd like to introduce, uh, Philipe Golden, uh, Felipe Hold something. Just a moment about his background. Um, is a post-doctoral researcher. So Philippe Golden is a postdoctoral researcher in clinically applied affective neuroscience in the Department of Psychology at Stanford, holds a PhD in clinical psychology from Rutgers.

He also spent six years in India and Nepal studying languages, Budhist philosophy and debate, which means that he can prove you wrong in a nonviolent way, in languages you don't even understand. Dang . Uh, Felipe is currently doing clinical research funded by the NIH in three areas. And here I have to read because otherwise I'll say it all wrong.

Neuro imaging investigations of cognitive effective mechanisms in healthy adults and individuals with various forms of psychopathology, the effect of mindfulness, meditation, and cognitive behavioral therapy on neural substrates of emotion and attention regulation.  and the effect of child parent mindfulness meditation training.

Question is, why does this matter? Uh, Felipe and his colleagues are working on understanding how meditation affects the brain, and I can think of at least four implications for this. One is that meditation is moving out of the realm of faith-based practice in into the realm of recognized.  two. As this research is better accepted, more people will practice and benefit from meditation.

Three, you'll be able to submit the cost of your zafu and Za Butone as medical expenses, although not this year. And, uh, fourth implication. If you haven't already, you should immediately go to go slash iy and sign up for the next round of search Inside Yourself. Google's own mindfulness based emotional intelligence.

So without further ado, please take a deep breath focus and join me in welcoming Felipe Golden, who's talk today is entitled The Cognitive Neuroscience of Mindfulness Meditation. Wow. Thank you so much.
