On Being - Investigating Healthy Minds

Thanks to Deokwun Sunim's Grand Rapid's Sangha for pointing this out:

Once upon a time we assumed the brain stops developing when we're young. Neuroscientist Richard Davidson helped overturn this idea by studying the brains of meditating Buddhist monks. Now he's working on conditions like ADHD and autism. He focuses not on fixing what is wrong, but on rewiring our minds with life-enriching behaviors.

Listen (or read) the interview and whole story here.
