On June 5, 2008, technician Andy Francis (left with eyeglasses) and associate scientist and co-principal investigator Antoine Lutz (right) outfit Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard (seated) with a 128-channel geodesic sensor net in preparation for conducting an electroencephalography (EEG) test at the EEG facility in the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Ricard is a longtime participant in an ongoing research study led by Richard J. Davidson that monitors a subject's brain waves during various forms of meditation including compassion meditation. Davidson is director of the Waisman Lab for Brain Imaging and Behavior (WLBIB) and the William James and Vilas Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry.
