 Abstract: I will present a large-scale multi-method and interdisciplinary one-year mental training study , the ReSource project, that aims at cultivating mental capacities such as attention, mindfulness, compassion, meta-cognition and perspective taking on self and others. More than 90 measures including behavioral-, functional- and structural brain-, autonomic- , subjective and hormonal measures were assessed in more than 200 subjects who underwent a sequence of 3 different 3-month modules focusing on a) mindfulness, body awareness and attention (Presence), b) compassion, emotion-regulation and prosocial motivation (Affect) and c) meta-cognition and perspective taking (Perspective). First results will be presented suggesting training-module specific plasticity on measures of a) daily subjective experience including mind-wandering and content of thought, b) structural brain plasticity, c) perspective taking, d) compassion, e) decision making and f) attention.
