Meditation and Imaging


Meditation, one of the most common mind-body interventions, is a conscious mental process that induces a set of integrated physiological changes termed the relaxation response. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been used to identify and characterize the brain regions that are active during meditation. This research suggests that various parts of the brain known to be involved in attention and in the control of the autonomic nervous system are activated, providing a neurochemical and anatomical basis for the effects of meditation on various physiological activities. Recent studies involving imaging are advancing the understanding of mind-body mechanisms. For example, meditation has been shown in one study to produce significant increases in left-sided anterior brain activity, which is associated with positive emotional states. Moreover, in this same study, meditation was associated with increases in antibody titers to influenza vaccine, suggesting potential linkages among meditation, positive emotional states, localized brain responses, and improved immune function.

There are two instinctual attributes that are hardwired into our brain that may result in constant and recurring stress that may be harmful to our mental and physical health. The first is our survival instinct...

Just Can’t Stop Biting my Fingernails

Fingernail biting is a compulsive behavior that is very often started during a person’s pre-teen or teen years. It is normally a type of defensive reaction that occurs when a young person encounters a threatening situation that they cannot understand. While I’ve seen this occur in situations where there has been a significant stress in the home – to include frequent relocations and abuse – it frequently starts when a seemingly simple event occurs.

One example of this involved a young thirteen year old boy who had been chewing his nails since the age of nine. In this case, the...

The Internet Porn Trap

Of spoofing, spam, and Internet porn, it is probably the last creation of the Information Super Highway that has had the most adverse effect on the lives of many people. The immediate availability of – legal and illegal – pornographic images has made parental supervision nearly impossible and has ruined many relationships.

Like any addictive behavior, Internet porn addiction has both physiological and mental sides. The arousal that ensues creates a reaction in the brain and body. Like any drug, when the physical manifestation is linked to psychological aspect, this on-line viewing...
