meditation strengthens the brain.
If you know a little about brain anatomy, you know that the cortex is composed of many layers of folds. The research has shown that long-term meditators have more of this. It's believed that this may allow the brain to process information more quickly. This folding is called gyrification. The longer you meditate, the more gyrification you have.
Yet another benefit to meditation. And evidence for the brain's ability to change throughout life
