Meditation May Change Brain Structure: Meditation causes  structural changes in the brain  associated with memory, empathy, and  stress, according to new research.  Researchers, whose findings are  reported in the journal Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging,  examined MRI scans of  participants over a period of 8 weeks. Daily  meditation sessions of 30 minutes  produced measurable changes in  subjects with no previous meditation history.  The anxiety and stress  region of the brain, the amygdala, produced less gray  matter. In a  non-meditating control group, these positive changes did not take   place. (The  New York Times, 1/28/11)
