    Yes, I agree that differences in white or grey matter volume - if they were found to exist based on reliable evidence - would not imply 'no physical basis'. But the thing is, I suspect there aren't any.

    The research standards in this area are really poor. Its so easy to get a false positive finding. And the speculation often goes way beyond the data, Interoception, ffs!

    If six weeks of mindfulness training can increase grey matter volume, there something fishy going on somewhere :cautious:

    Thanks @Woolie - I did not realize this was such a gray area (pun intended) with so much wiggle room in interpretation! :sluggish:
