    September 4th, 2015

    Where has the summer gone!  Although I have had several periods of vacation I also had begun many new projects.

    In March 2015 ONR approved our new project to test the hypothesis that white matter changes found following meditation training were due to frontal theta.

    We are currently in the midst of testing that hypothesis.  I have attached our current report to ONR that provides an update on that project.

    We have completed and written a study of 70 children who practiced the Attention Network Test for three sessions.  The goal was to test a hypothesis of Dr. Pascale Voelker (the first author) about the involvement of  epigentic factors in the learning of skills. I have posted a copy of the paper. Dr. Voelker has now completed a study of 70 adults involved in three forms of skill learning. The new work replicates and extends the child work and we are currently working on a paper describing these results.

    2.5 Millenia of attention.

    I have completed an introduction to a four volume collection of classic works in the field of attention.  The collection begins 2500 years ago with passages from the Bhagavad Gita and the Way of Life. I have written a draft of the introduction to the volumes which is appended below.  The volumes are due for publication sometime in 2016.
