Overview

Rebekah Kaunhoven, PhD, is both the module organiser and main tutor on the Mindfulness & the Brain module and is also a CMRP thesis supervisor for MA and MSc projects. Rebekah’s interest in researching mindfulness from a cognitive neuroscience perspective developed during her MSc. Her research focused on investigating the impact of mindfulness training on emotion regulation and rumination in adults using a neuroscientific measure called event related potential measures. This interest in the cognitive neuroscience of mindfulness continued into a PhD where Rebekah investigated the impact of mindfulness training on self-regulation in primary school pupils.
