It is generally accepted that the aim of mindfulness training is to develop greater objectivity, acceptance and detachment with each experience. Using a standard delivery structure, daily practice of mindfulness meditation teaches the trainee to perceive thoughts merely as thoughts and body sensations as body sensations, with an attempt to not identify with the experience.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that a short program in mindfulness meditation produces demonstrable effects on brain and immune function, and suggest that meditation may change brain andimmune function in positive ways and underscore the need for additional research.

Plasticity and primary motor cortex.
TLDR
The intrinsic horizontal neuronal connections in MI are a strong candidate substrate for map reorganization: They interconnect large regions of MI, they show activity-dependent plasticity, and they modify in association with skill learning.
