TEDxBrownUniversity – Willoughby Britton – Why A Neuroscientist Would Study Meditation

In this TEDxTalk, Professor Willoughby Britton tells us that happiness is not about getting what you want. She discusses our mental qualities as habits we practice and she sheds light on an important link between neuroscience and contemplative studies. Britton received a BA in Neuroscience from Colgate University in 1996 and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Arizona in 2007. Broadly speaking, she is interested in the role of variations in conscious states in the intersection between affective neuroscience, clinical science and religion.

    Excellent! I liked your concise reduction of one of the most complex, interesting and important emerging fields of study on the planet. I also liked your Vimeo sessions with Dan Ingram. Keep up the fabulous work!
