Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was used to identify and characterize the brain regions that are active during a simple form of meditation.
Slide 23 - Results Significant signal increases were observed in the dorsolateral prefrontal and parietal cortices, hippocampus/parahippocampus, temporal lobe, pregenual anterior cingulate cortex, striatum, and pre- and post-central gyri during meditation. This indicates that the practice of meditation activates neural structures involved in attention and control of the autonomic nervous system. Neuroreport. 2000 May 15;11(7):1581-5.
