Episode 32| Radical Mindfulness with David Vago Ph.D. Neuroscientist and Psychology
5 days ago
David Vago is studying how mindfulness is effective in neuroscience today. He’s an associate psychologist in the Functional Neuroimaging Laboratory and instructor at Harvard Medical School. I learned so much from David about the benefits of mindfulness and meditation, I was taking notes during the entire interview!
David’s research interests broadly focus on utilizing translational models to identify and characterize neurobiological substrates mediating psychopathology, to better predict outcomes and potential biologically-based diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for those suffering with mental illness. In this context, David has been specifically focusing on the study of mindfulness-based interventions in clinical settings, and the basic cognitive and neuroscientific mechanisms by which mindfulness-based practices function.
We talk about how David began his studies, mindfulness from a scientific approach, and where true happiness is according to science. I would love to hear what you think about this episode. It confirmed what I felt the benefits of mindfulness are and taught me so much more.

You decide how you look at the stressors in your life.
