Meditating, timing mice?

Mouse brain comfort zone?

University of Oregon (below) in Eugene have replicated some of the same brain patterns exhibited by human meditators in the brains of mice - no tiny meditation cushions or squeaky "oms" required. Still, experiments show that the "meditating mice" were more relaxed and less stressed than those with no rodent meditation training.

Meditation training reduces self-reported anxiety and decreases the amount of the stress hormone cortisol in the blood. Imaging studies of meditators' brains also have detected increased activity in the anterior cingulate cortex, or ACC. This area of the brain is involved in a wide variety of functions, including emotional regulation and cognitive control. Could be they should also include the body-brain timing approach as well
