Description: Mindfulness Meditation has a number of therapeutic benefits for mental health conditions, yet this has been explored less in adolescent samples. This study aims to do not only that, but also examine, using brain scans, if the therapeutic effects of mindfulness are due to an increase ability to focus and manipulate information (working memory).
