Two articulate researchers discuss fascinating brain scan studies that show how blood flow to specific parts of the brain changes when we are more or less controlling, are overloaded with mental static, feel agitated, or see ourselves as separated from others. The tasteful urgency in Fred Stella's performance fits this groundbreaking research; his phrasing and vocal quality are unfailing throughout this audio. The authors show how practices like meditation not only change blood flow in the moment but also create longer-lasting brain connections that can alter our habitual approaches to many aspects of life. By making the neurological underpinnings of mental states so concrete, and drawing on so many cultures for examples, they provide enough anchors to give this audio both familiarity and excitement from start to finish.
