By the end of the twentieth-century, monks had become the favorite guinea pigs of the neuroscience laboratory. Scientists from Princeton, Harvard, the University of Wisconsin and the University of California–Davis wired up monks to state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and studying the effects of intensive, advanced meditation. Monks offer scientists an opportunity to study whether years of […]

One of the most basic assumptions about intention is that it operates according to a generally accepted sense of cause and effect. If A causes B, then A must have happened first. This assumption reflects one of our deepest beliefs, that time is a one-way, forward-moving arrow,  the most tangible evidence is the physical evidence […]

Reversing the irreversible Treatment of type 1 diabetes is touted as a great medical success story—a condition considered long-since conquered, ever since Sir Frederick Banting and his colleagues at the University of Toronto ground up the pancreas of a cow and injected it into a 14-year-old diabetic boy in 1921.

The way forward through the mess Earlier this week I attended a meeting of the great and the good, held in the  House of Lords in the UK’s Parliament and chaired by Lord Andrew Stone and my good pal Dr. Jude Currivan.

Seeing clearly now Ask most doctors why people develop eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, and they’ll blame it on the fact that eyes just inevitably wear out.

Mental starvation Entire industries in modern medicine—psychiatry, the drug industry, even many therapeutic arms of psychology—are predicated on the idea that chronic, crippling stress, anxiety and a number of other forms of so-called mental illness are incredibly tough nuts to crack, requiring years of strong medication that, at best, can only control symptoms. In fact, […]

How to stop growing terrorists What on earth possesses someone to become a suicide bomber or a terrorist? For years I’ve been mystified about the thought process of, say, a Palestinian like Hanifah, beautiful and intelligent, a woman with a law degree, a one-year-old daughter and everything to live for, when she walks into the […]
