The basic platform upon which any mind-body practice operates is attention. Meditation involves, first and foremost, a fine-tuning of attention. Attention represents the precision- the efficient attunement- of neural connections and networks in processing information. When we pay attention through practice, we fine-tune the connections in the brain involved in the specific experience, so attention is the mechanism that enables neuroplasticity. As we practice remaining attentive to the breath or to a particular bodily sensation in yoga or meditation, we strengthen the neural pathways involved in their detection, and we thereby become more sensitive to such signals as they arise.
