These images represent brain activity significantly reduced following the MBSR while the women were performing an Emotional Stroop task during fMRI. The colour guide represents F values with white/yellow as most significant difference.

The MBSR was able to calm their response to the emotion elicited by the pain-related words. Credit: University of Ottawa
