Meditation affects an area of the brain that influences our ability to make decisions, regulate emotions, and to understand and control our attention, reactions and impulses. Meditation even seems to strengthen the cerebral cortex in areas involved in emotional control. And it is not all about alpha waves; theta waves play an equally important part, writes Dr. Svend Davanger.
