Prior research has linked mindfulness to improvements in attention, and suggested that the effects of mindfulness are particularly pronounced when individuals are cognitively depleted or stressed. Yet, no studies have tested whether mindfulness improves declarative awareness of unexpected stimuli in goal-directed tasks. Participants (N=794) were either depleted (or not) and subsequently underwent a brief mindfulness induction (or not). They then completed an inattentional blindness task during… Expand
Mindfulness and false memories: state and dispositional mindfulness does not increase false memories for naturalistic scenes presented in a virtual environment.
TLDR
A beneficial effect of mindfulness practice on memory sensitivity is found and a positive and negative effect of dispositional mindfulness on memory outcomes are reported, in line with a recent proposal on the link between mindfulness and episodic memory. Expand
A Dual-Process Perspective on Mindfulness, Memory, and Consciousness
Mindfulness has recently been associated with “fringe consciousness”: an increased sensitivity to metacognitive feeling evoked from the processing of information. In three studies, we examined thisExpand
Mindfulness improves verbal learning and memory through enhanced encoding.
TLDR
This research indicates that mindfulness may primarily improve verbal learning and memory through improved encoding processes, which is specifically due to a significantly enhanced encoding process for the mindfulness group. Expand
Relationship between Trait Mindfulness and False Memory: A Bilingual Deese-Roediger-McDermott Paradigm
Mindfulness-based interventions are known to increase false memory. However, high trait mindfulness is associated with an external encoding style and field independence, which in turn are associatedExpand
Brief Meditation Trainings Improve Performance in the Emotional Attentional Blink
Objectives To efficiently handle the continuous flow of information to which the attentional system is exposed, humans are equipped with filters like the attentional blink (i.e., a failure to detectExpand
Can Specific Attentional Skills be Modified with Mindfulness Training for Novice Practitioners?
Mindfulness practice is becoming an accepted psychological intervention used in clinical settings to help enhance attention. To date however relatively few randomised control trial (RCT) studies haveExpand
Meditation, Mindfulness, and Attention: a Meta-analysis
Despite being an ancient tradition, meditation has only become a popular inquiry of research over the past few decades. This resurgence can partially be attributed to the popularization of EasternExpand
Inattentional blindness on the full-attention trial: Are we throwing out the baby with the bathwater?
TLDR
Some potentially problematic consequences of implementing the full-attention-trial exclusion criterion are demonstrated, including that excluded observers may cluster in experimental conditions and the exclusion criterion may lead researchers to understate the pervasiveness of inattentional blindness. Expand
Mindfulness Interventions.
TLDR
Evaluated RCTs have demonstrated that mindfulness interventions improve outcomes in multiple domains (e.g., chronic pain, depression relapse, addiction), and opportunities and challenges for mindfulness intervention research and on community applications are focused on. Expand

Mindfulness training modifies subsystems of attention
TLDR
Whereas participation in the MBSR course improved the ability to endogenously orient attention, retreat participation appeared to allow for the development and emergence of receptive attentional skills, which improved exogenous alerting-related process. Expand
Minds on the blink: The relationship between inattentional blindness and attentional blink
TLDR
It is found that “non-noticers” who failed to detect an unexpected stimulus in the IB task also demonstrated a larger AB effect, suggesting that some observers may be more generally susceptible to failures of conscious visual awareness, regardless of specific context. Expand
Mindfulness meditation counteracts self-control depletion
TLDR
This finding suggests that a brief period of mindfulness meditation may serve as a quick and efficient strategy to foster self-control under conditions of low resources. Expand
Regular, brief mindfulness meditation practice improves electrophysiological markers of attentional control
TLDR
It is suggested that mindfulness meditation may alter the efficiency of allocating cognitive resources, leading to improved self-regulation of attention, and foster changes in neuronal activity related to attentional control. Expand
Is Inattentional Blindness Related to Individual Differences in Visual Working Memory Capacity or Executive Control Functioning?
TLDR
Evidence that working memory capacity (WMC) contributed to inattentional blindness, with lower WMC being predictive of IB, and differences in higher-order executive control of attention contributes to the experience. Expand
Cognitive-Affective Neural Plasticity following Active-Controlled Mindfulness Intervention
TLDR
The findings highlight the importance of active control in MT research, indicate unique neural mechanisms for progressive stages of mindfulness training, and suggest that optimal application of MT may differ depending on context, contrary to a one-size-fits-all approach. Expand
Mindfulness as a means of reducing aggressive behavior: dispositional and situational evidence.
TLDR
Two studies found that dispositional mindfulness correlated negatively with self-reported aggressiveness and hostile attribution bias, and participants made mindful before receiving social rejection feedback displayed less-aggressive behavior than did rejected participants not made mindful. Expand
Examining the protective effects of mindfulness training on working memory capacity and affective experience.
TLDR
Findings suggest that sufficient MT practice may protect against functional impairments associated with high-stress contexts, and that MT-related improvements in WMC may support some but not all of MT's salutary effects. Expand
What you see is what you set: sustained inattentional blindness and the capture of awareness.
TLDR
The authors conclude that many--but not all--aspects of attention capture apply to inattentional blindness but that these 2 classes of phenomena remain importantly distinct. Expand
Inattentional blindness for ignored words: Comparison of explicit and implicit memory tasks
TLDR
While there was no evidence of conscious perception, subjects were not blind to the implicit perceptual properties of fixated but ignored words and the selective-attention task did not result in perfect filtering as suggested by Rees et al. Expand
