Drawing upon his extensive knowledge of the way meditation affects the body, mind, and brain, renowned neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson* will discuss what modern research has taught us about the brain's ability to change and adapt. Dr. Davidson's research with both novice and long-term meditators has led to exciting discoveries about the ways the practice of meditation can foster a sense of well-being and impact our physical health.

Richard J. Davidson, PhD, is a renowned neuroscientist and one of the world's leading experts on the impact of contemplative practices, such as meditation, on the brain. He is the founder and chair of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

He is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking work in studying emotion and the brain. A friend and confidante of the Dalai Lama, he is a highly sought after expert and speaker internationally. Time magazine named him one of the most influential people in the world in 2006.

Dr. Davidson has published hundreds of scientific papers and edited 14 books. A New York Times bestselling author, he has been featured widely in popular media, including ABC's Nightline, National Public Radio, Time magazine, Newsweek, O, the Oprah magazine, PBS's the Charlie Rose Show, Harvard Business Review, and many other national and international news outlets.
