I talked to Scientific American about the neuroscience of mindfulness for this article: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/2014/06/12/what-does-mindfulness-meditation-do-to-your-brain/
Interview with Reset.me covering our mindfulness-based stress reduction and IL-6 study: http://reset.me/study/study-mindfulness-meditation-can-reduce-inflammation-and-prevent-disease/
