Research Presentation – Effects of Meditation May 7, 2015

On May, the 28th (Thursday), 7 30pm at 251 Young St, Annandale, Britta Biedermann (SZC member) and her fellow researchers (a good mix from Macquarie University, University of Western Sydney and Sydney University) will present results of their work about the effects of long term meditation on very early processes of hearing. Data collection could only be made possible thanks to generous time contributions of some members of the SZC, who took part in this study. In a recently completed follow-up study, Gillian Coote taught staff and students at Macquarie University how to meditate in an 8-week meditation course. Britta and her colleagues investigated again the effects of meditation on early auditory attention in those novice meditators. Results of both studies will be presented. Please come along, and hear what all this points to, and ask lots of questions. Please bring a gold coin donation for the SZC as host.
