The aim of this study is to examine the changes in task-related cortical activity of healthy 60 to 85 year-old adults following a 10-week standardised mindfulness meditation program (in the Burmese Vipassana tradition) using Electroencephalography (EEG); Event Related Potentials (ERP) will also be examined. Training of the experimental group has been completed and the data are being analysed. The active control group has undertaken the Active Cognitive Enhancement program.
