Attention regulation is a complex phenomena that should not only involve different parts of the brain, but also cardiac, breath and gut dynamics. Aiming to develop a physiological model of embodied mind we scanned 50 participants with Magnetoencephalography and a serie of peripheral electrodes measuring the electric field of heart, and gut as well as pressure sensors for bilateral breathing. Participants were selected according to their meditation practice following a regressive curve from novices to expert meditators. Participants were asked to pay attention to breathing before and after breathing slowing down. We correlated the mindfulness practice hours with physiological parameters to test the change of global and pairwise embodied coherence with meditation practice and life style, as well as compare the embodied mechanisms of attention regulation.
