Figure 2

Cortical surfaces with post hoc values greater than +3 (in red and yellow) or −3 (in blue and green) as calculated by SPM5 using the BOLD contrast (jhana-rest). Note that transition to jhana is associated with selective increases in BOLD signal in right temporal region and with decreases in parietal lobe and posterior frontal lobe.
