clear talk about science

We wish every scientist, medical doctor or high-tech professional we know -- and we know thousands -- would listen to Sharon Begley's interview this morning on NPR's Diane Rehm show (audio downloads, podcasts, tapes and transcripts will be available here later today). Begley, a Wall Street Journal reporter who's covered neuroscience for many years, is the recent author of Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain: How a New Science Reveals Our Extraordinary Potential to Transform Ourselves. Her extemporaneous descriptions on-air today about research that links meditation and mindfulness to changes in the brain are a delight: clear, concise, thorough and precise, accessible to a wide audience without "dumbing down" the science. Listen and learn!
