In this project, we investigate the underlying mechanisms of mindfulness meditation (in collaboration with Drs. John Clapper and Michael Lewin). Mindfulness meditation has attracted attention in recent years in many areas, including clinical settings, companies, and educational institutions. They claim that mindfulness education improves our attention control, emotion regulation, self-control, and reduces anxiety and depression. However, the underlying mechanism of mindfulness meditation is not well known yet. We investigate what kinds of cognitive, physiological, and social factors affect mindfulness meditation.
