A good start of the year, the first paper using the data we acquiered in India during my PhD is published ! We are comparing the EEG spectrum activity of practitioners from three meditation traditions and a control group and show meditators have higher power in the high gamma range than controls. We are also analysing activity of clusters of artefactual independant components to control the validity of our data.

An error has been found in figure 2 of my 2011 Neuroimage paper Lost in thoughts: Neural markers of low alertness during mind wandering . There is a typo in the ERP's legend in the upper panel and as a result the legend is inverted between the mind-wandering and breath focus conditions - pretty amazed that it took 5 years to be noticed ! Thanks to Shoichi Asaoka for pointing it out to me. The journal has been contacted in October 2016 to request a correction, but in the meantime you can download the corrected version of the figure here !
