The science behind meditation - is it brain training?

An interesting article on Matthieu Ricard, a researcher turned monk, suggests that meditation might act as a brain training exercise, helping the human mind to achieve superior levels of happiness and decreased propensity for negativity. One hopes more research is done in this area so that the exact mechanism by which meditation acts to bring peace of mind is understood, thereby helping the whole of mankind lead a more content life.
