Mindfulness: a mental health technique

Dr Neil Bailey, based at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry research centre, investigates how techniques of mindfulness (or meditation) change our brain to prevent or ameliorate mental illness. Recent research has shown that the brain's grey matter is diminished in psychiatric disorders, and conserved or even augmented with mindfulness practice. Neil describes in this video the particular aspect his research is exploring.
