The Oregon team to establish whether alterations in theta-wave activity in the anterior cingulate cortex were the key to the anxiety busting effects of mindfulness Dr Niell's team targeted their genetically altered proteins to allow them to produce theta-wave like activity in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) of their mice.  By flashing the laser connected to the mice's brains, they were able to make the ACC neurons fire at the same pace that they observed in human meditators.

The limbic system is a complex set of structures in the mid brain that includes the hypothalamus, hippocampus, amygdala and cingulate cortex. It has been described as the “feeling and reacting brain”. It is responsible for the formation of memories and is constantly determining our level of safety. The Limbic System assigns emotional significance to everything …
