Gains in the ability to sustain attention developed through intensive meditation training are maintained up to seven years later, according to a new study published in the Journal of Cognitive Enhancement.

Regular meditation effectively supports mental, emotional and physical health in numerous tangible ways. Several previous studies have supported the hypothesis that meditation training improves practitioners’ emotional regulation. Meditation training programs can have measurable effects on how the brain functions even when someone is not actively meditating, especially in areas related to pain.

In building upon this strong body of evidence, researchers are continuing to deepen our understanding of the profound and inspirational benefits of regular meditation practice in everyday life…

The study based on the Shamatha Project, is a major investigation of the cognitive, psychological and biological effects of meditation led by researchers at the University of California, Davis, Center for Mind and Brain.
