The researchers concluded that the brain can, therefore, be trained to exhibit more powerful responses to empathy. Scientists hope that these techniques may be useful for teaching compassion to children and adolescents and decreasing bullying and violence, as well as helping people prone to depression learn compassion for themselves. Meditation practices impact physiological pathways that regulate stress and disease-causing processes.
The research is at the beginning stages and previous research has shown that any type of meditation or prayer has a positive effect on the brain, but they had not previously studied this area.  To me, it has fascinating implications.
Would you be willing to practice this type of meditation or other forms of meditation or prayer to achieve this in your life?  Why or why not? Pahhhh, just another excuse for someone to be a lazy bugger and sit around on their arse all day. I some of them every day in Thailand, either sitting around doing nothing or shaving their heads, orange clad layabouts. In a video that recently aired on "Through the Wormhole" narrated by Morgan Freeman on the TV channel Science, Dr. The image below compares brain activity at rest and while the subject (a Presbyterian minister is shown in the video) is in deep prayer.


The red part indicates greater activity, and in this case, increased activity is observed in the frontal lobes and the language area of the brain. People can learn to regulate thoughts and emotions and promote happiness and compassion through practicing compassion meditation regularly. The researchers are planning a study to examine brain changes over a longer period of time of people who practice compassion meditation. Much attention is focused on meditation to improve attention, develop mindfulness, and calm the mind. More empathy, compassion and kindness would sure make the global garden beautiful with vibrant, healthy, colorful flowers. Newberg did not observe any of the brain activity in the frontal lobe that he observed in religious people. Newberg concludes that all religions create neurological experiences, and while God is unimaginable for atheists, for religious people, God is as real as the physical world. Techniques for compassion meditation include concentration exercises that train attention, behavioral training such as practicing generosity, and cognitive strategies of self-reflection and visualizing the suffering of others.
However, there is now evidence that physiological processes are activated in meditation focused on cultivating compassion.


The images of the fires have been terrible, but everyone being so caring to others has brought tears to my eyes more than once. Andrew Newberg, MD, is the Director of Research at the Myrna Brind Center for Integrative Medicine at Thomson Jefferson University Hospital and Medical College, and he has studied the neuroscientific effect of religious and spiritual experiences for decades. Newberg believes that for the brain, praying to God in the Judeo-Christian tradition is similar to talking to people.
