I am a neurophysiologist with 30+ years working on the neurobiology of cognition. For this I have studied the electrical activity of individual brain cells in research animals as they perform cognitive tasks.

Based on careful reading of Buddhist texts, along with my own and others' experience with meditation practice, I am in the process of developing a neural network theory for how the brain changes during, and as a result of Buddhist meditation and practice.
