Research has shown that mindfulness meditation induces brain functional and structural changes (neuroplasticity) associated with attention, self-control, emotion regulation, and social functioning. This talk will first summarize the latest findings of mindfulness meditation in stress reduction, improved attention, self-control, and brain plasticity in cognitive, emotional, and sensory-motor areas; then the talk will explore how mindfulness meditation induces neuroplasticity and the above-mentioned functions; at last, the talk will discuss clinical applications of mindfulness meditation in neurorehabilitation.
