Round table


Science is currently exploring through meditation, the weft of our reality in the moment and the relationship with oneself and others, in order to understand emotional regulation mechanisms, compassion, attention and its role in learning, decision making and education.

How do brain imaging, neuroscience, and epigenetics validate the effects of meditation on the brain, mind, neuroplasticity and gene expression?

What if meditation favors positive brain aging and the prevention of Alzheimer's disease?
