Matthieu Ricard is one of the Buddhist monks that is most studied by Neuroscientists. His compassion meditation was contrasted with Indian breathing and mindfulness meditations by leading researchers. Matthieu joined Professor Steven Laureys for meditation and dialogue.

We are excited to see a shift from multiple electrodes and fMRI to our single EEG channel.
