Long-term meditators — those with 15 years of practice or more — appear to have thicker frontal lobes than nonmeditators. People who describe themselves as highly spiritual tend to exhibit an asymmetry in the thalamus — a feature that other people can develop after just eight weeks of training in meditation skills. It may be that some people have fundamental asymmetry [in the thalamus] to begin with and that leads them down this path, which changes the brain further. Faith and health overlap in other ways too.
