Just up at The Mindful Hack

Neuroscience: Meditation really can change the brain

My experiences point to truth but yours are classic examples of brain rot? (Charlie Brown's sister Lucy's theory of psychiatry, but not a cartoon*)

Jeff Schwartz lectures in Ireland on changing the troubled brain by changing the mind

Neuroscience: First detailed map of the Grand Central Station of the brain

Can languages be treated as if words were genes?

The Mindful Hack is news and views on the science of our brains. It supports the book The Spiritual Brain, by Mario Beauregard and Denyse O'Leary.

*A reader helpfully advises me of an error:
In Charles Schulz' popular cartoon strip Peanuts, Charlie Brown and Lucy are not brother and sister, but unrelated.

Charlie Brown's sister is Sally Brown, and Lucy van Pelt has two younger brothers, Linus and Rerun.
Ah yes, ... being a bossy older sister myself, I had merely assumed that she was one of the sorority.
