Anxious? Activate your anterior cingulate cortex with a little meditation

Anxious? Activate your anterior cingulate cortex with a little meditation

Scientists, like Buddhist monks and Zen masters, have known for years that meditation can reduce anxiety, but not how. Scientists have now succeeded in identifying the brain functions involved.

anterior cingulate cortex is responsible for autonomic functions/control such as regulating blood pressure and heart rate AND rational cognitive funcitons. ACC is involved with early learning tasks. It has a lot of spindle cells. Stroop test activates the ACC.

People with PTSD are shown to have 2 areas of the brain that are sensitive to STRESS SHRINK: the hippocampus,in the limbic system important for memory & the anterior cingulate cortex, part of the prefrontal cortex that is involved in reasoning & decision-making. A fMRI, which tracks blood flow in the brain, revealed that when people who have PTSD are reminded of the trauma, they tend to have an underactive prefrontal cortex & an overactive amygdala, which processes fear and emotion.

Why do some traumatized people get PTSD while others don't?
