Meditation Helps Your Brain Process Information Quicker

Gizmodo has an excellent write up on a scientific study at the UCLA on the effects of meditation on the physical brain. The study finds scientific proof that meditation enhances the brain to allow for faster information processing. From the article:

“..What they discovered was that long-term meditators display large amounts of something known as gyrification in the brain. Gyrification is just a fancy-pants term for the amount of folding in the cortex—it’s what gives the brain its unique, ridged appearance. Furthermore, there’s a heap of evidence supporting the fact that the more folded a brain is, the quicker it can process information.”
