Mindfullness and Meditation

In 2010, Fadel Zeidan and a team of researchers from University of North Carolina published a study of “the effects of brief mindfulness meditation training on experimentally induced pain.” I asked Zeidan, now based at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, to tell me about that first study and its findings, and explain how his research has progressed since.
