Our brains on meditation

Neuroscientist Rohan Dixit’s work is based on his first-hand research with monks in the Himalayas, where he recorded their brainwaves and heartbeat patterns during meditation. On learning that using the feedback from our own heartbeat can bring more calm and emotional self-awareness, Dixit got an idea for an ingenious consumer wearable device that he is now working on.
