About Patricia E Sharp

I am a neurophysiologist with 30+ years working on the neurobiology of cognition. For this I have studied the electrical activity of individual brain cells in research animals as they perform cognitive tasks.

More recently, however, I have undergone a major shift in emphasis. Specifically, I have become interested in the neurobiology of Buddhist meditation. Based on careful reading of Buddhist texts, along with my own and others' experience with meditation practice, I am in the process of developing a neural network theory for how the brain changes during, and as a result of Buddhist meditation and practice.
