Gaelle Desbordes in Science & Vie
Gaelle Desbordes' work was highlighted in the October issue of the French popular science magazine Science & Vie. The magazine featured her recent study on the effects of meditation on the amygdala in its cover story on meditation, neurofeedback, and placebo effects: "Guerir par la pensee: la preuve en 15 experiences" (Healing through the mind: Evidence from 15 experiments/studies). Desbordes found a decrease in amygdala activation in response to emotional images after eight weeks of meditation training, suggesting that meditation practice may increase participants' equanimity in response to emotional challenge.
