  • Summary: The Effects Of Mindfulness Meditation On Working Memory

    The Effects of Mindfulness Meditation on the Working Memory in College Students Previous research studies have exhibited evidence towards the relationship between meditation and improved academic scores (Foris, 2005). With meditation becoming a widely popular topic, especially for its benefits in the reduction of stress and anxiety, it is questioned whether the use of proper mindfulness meditation has positive effects on the working memory and if so, do those effects differentiate between males and females. The use of meditation not only involves awareness of breathing patterns and the self, but also branches out into multiple practices, including the body scan, walking meditation, and loving-kindness meditation. “Mindfulness” in itself can be portrayed on many levels, including mindfulness as a state, mindfulness as a trait, and as used here; mindfulness as a training or practice (Bueno, Kozasa, Aparecida da Silva, Alves, Rodrigues Louza, Pompeia, 2014). Past studies have shown that there is a difference present in the working memory between males and females including the difference in the part of the brain being activated when completing a difficult task (Speck, Ernst, Braun, Koch, & Miller; 2000). The ability to report results supporting the benefits and differences of mindful meditation in males’ and females’ working memory could lead to further research towards the most helpful meditation based on gender. Several studies (Quach, Jastrowski Mano, & Alexander, 2015;…

    nature, including religious tensions, non-violent political movements(e.g. imposition of a strong ideology: the war against communism in general for example, although it did contain elements of violence in certain regimes) as well as referendums.

  • Comfort Theory In Nursing

    (Kolcaba, 2003). Comfort Theory delineates a bidirectional relationship between patient’s comfort, behaviors that move the patient toward well-being, and institutional outcomes.

  • Reading Fluency Problems Affect Reading Comprehension

    However, these studies primarily focus on the intervention working to improve reading fluency over a short period of time.

  • Humanitarian Intervention In International Countries

    I. INTRODUCTION The international community appears to believe that there is a direct correlation between military intervention and cessation of gross violations of human rights that are being committed by the government of a state, supposing that there will be an improvement in the conditions for those against whom these violations are being committed if there is a legal humanitarian intervention. This assumption is largely based on the concept that if an intervention is legal, it will be…
