Clifford Saron TEDTalk - "The majesty of the present"
Interesting short talk on the Saron lab's efforts with their "shamatha project". Lots of cool stuff here. What interested me the most: Apparently Dr. Saron has a paper discussing the increase in telomerase (an enzyme used in DNA replication - its also expressed highly in cells that divide often) after an extended meditation retreat. I wonder if they figured out what tissues it was highly regulated in? Cool.
