My research investigates neurocognitive and psychophysiological changes resulting from contemplative training (meditation) in the context of well-being across the lifespan. Specifically, I have been examining the impact of meditation, mostly mindfulness, on systems of cognitive control, attention, emotion regulation and conceptual processing both longitudinally and in cross-sectional studies. I investigate how neuroscientific research on contemplative practices can inform prevention of mental illness, psychotherapy and well-being enhancement across the lifespan. I am particularly interested in possible preventive effects of mindfulness on mental and physical health in children and adolescents. My research combines psychophysiological methods, mainly event-related brain potentials (ERPs), with behavioural and self-report measures.
