Scientific study of Buddhist meditation

I just stumbled on an interesting scientific article published last year in a prestigeous journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science USA, on neurological study of Buddhist monks' meditation. The article entitled

Long-term meditators self-induce high-amplitude gamma synchrony during mental practice, published in
PNAS 101(46), 16369-16373, November 16, 2004 by
Antoine Lutz , Lawrence L. Greischar , Nancy B. Rawlings , Matthieu Ricard and Richard J. Davidson
