AbstractAs an increasingly popular practice, meditation is considered to facilitate affective regulation and positive mind state. Here we report meditation training versus active control ‘neutralized’ elderly participants' positive and negative affective processing, and led to more positive resting-state connectivity from the pontine nuclei, which regulates affective processing, to the posterior cingulate/precuneus which engages in self-referential processing. Further, the change in pons-to-posterior cingulate connectivity predicted change in affective processing in the meditation, but not active control, group. These findings indicate that meditation enhances affective regulatory capacities, with a neural basis of increased influence of the pontine nuclei on the posterior cingulate/precuneus.
