Meditation and Brain Gyrification!

Hey, remember the other day I talked about meditating?  I’m still thinking about it but now I’m thinking about it because I read about the brains of folks who have engaged in meditation over time. Their brains have more ‘gyrification’ going on.

I bet you don’t know what that means do you?  I didn’t either!  Let’s see if I can give you a gloss on what happens in brains when folks are serious meditators.  Brains curl and furl in on themselves.  This seems to happen in order to give the brain more area for information storage.  Thus the more you meditate the greater brain storage you have.  At least that is what one study found in looking at the brains of long time meditators compared to controls.

Folks, I could really use more brain!
