Description: Meditation-naïve participants completed 2 structural MRI scans. The first scan (T1) occurred pre-randomization, and the second scan (T2) occurred after the intervention period. After the first (baseline) MRI scan, participants were randomly assigned to one of three groups: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, an active control intervention, or a waitlist control intervention. We examined the impact of MBSR on changes in brain structure by comparing changes in GMV (T2-T1) for MBSR compared to controls.
This will help to track the use of this data in the literature.
