This insightful book by neurologist and Zen practitioner James Austin is icing on the four-layered cake of his previous books on Zen and the brain. He provides a unique, informed, and readable account of the brain mechanisms generating egocentric and enlightened consciousness, cross-referenced with his earlier works.
Zen-Brain Horizons is a wise and extraordinary book that brings science into focus through the medium of contemplative practice, and opens up new avenues to understanding how the mind works. In this, the fifth of Dr. James Austin's explorations of Zen and neuroscience, new research, well-established cerebral anatomy, and the classical stories of Chinese and Japanese Zen are brought together in creative insights regarding the transformative process of Zen practice.
Of particular interest to readers who have been following Dr. Austin's unfolding understanding across his books will be the detailed speculations regarding different attentional systems of the brain and how their functioning may relate to sudden awakening experience triggered by sound or visual phenomena above the horizon. As with his previous volumes, this is a feast for the mind to be savored by scientists, meditation practitioners, and everyone fascinated by the interface between science, religion, and the humanities.

A neurologist and Zen practitioner clarifies the benefits of meditative training, drawing on classical Buddhist literature and modern brain research. In Zen-Brain Horizons, James Austin draws on his decades of experience as a neurologist and Zen practitioner to clarify the benefits of meditative training. Austin integrates classical Buddhist literature with modern brain research, exploring the horizons of a living, neural Zen. When viewed in the light of today, the timeless wisdom of some Zen masters seems almost to have anticipated recent research in the neurosciences.
The keen attentiveness and awareness that we cultivate during meditative practices becomes the leading edge of our subsequent mental processing.
