November 16, 12:30 ET - 1:30 ET

An Associate Professor in the Psychiatry Department at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The focus of my research is to elucidate neural mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of yoga and meditation, both in clinical settings and in healthy individuals. We are particularly interested in how meditative practices change the flow of information within and between the major brain networks during emotionally challenging situations. My research has been covered by numerous news outlets including The New York Times, USA Today, CNN, and WebMD.
