Meditation and ageing: Cognitive improvements in older adults

The results of the scientific research done at Research Centre for Brain and Behaviour Liverpool John Moores University, UK shows that engaging in just over 10 min of mindfulness practice five times per week resulted in significant improvements in behavioral (response latency) and electrophysiological (N2 event-related potential) measures related to general task performance.

Overall, the results indicate that engaging in mindfulness meditation training improves the maintenance of goal-directed visuospatial attention and may be a useful strategy for counteracting cognitive decline associated with aging. Full Research study can be found at the below link:
