Join the USC Center for Mindfulness Science on October 18th for their upcoming Mindfulness Science Keynote Lecture with guest speaker and IONS Scientist Dr. Arnaud Delorme, PhD.
Arnaud will be presenting his research on the neural correlates of meditation and extraordinary experiences, including anomalous so-called “paranormal” experiences. Arnaud has been conducting numerous scientific studies on meditation over the past two decades. He was one of the first ones to report brain activity analyzed with reference to purely introspective measures — without external cues — during meditation, contributing to the growing appreciation for neurophenomenological investigations of meditation.
Arnaud’s research focused on mind wandering during meditation has demonstrated that mind wandering decreases with meditation experience and the neural correlates related to this decrease. He also has a keen interest in theories of consciousness and transcendent experience both during and outside of meditation.
Arnaud will be presenting some provocative results on the study of the brain of mediums and healers, integrating these findings with those from meditators to provide insights into the nature of consciousness and its relation to the brain.
