Lena This is a picture of the moment when Dr Elena Antonova received a standing ovation in the Wolfson Lecture Theatre of the Institute of Psychiatry at Kings College London at the culmination of her inspirational Neuroscience: Mindfulness and Applications event.


Dr Antonova's inaugural conference presented cutting-edge UK research into the Neuroscience of Mindfulness and its clinical applications to physical and mental conditions. This highly informative two-day event attracted multi-disciplinary participants and featured absorbing contributions by Entertainer Ruby Wax, BBC Arts Correspondent David Sillito and many eminent medical researchers (listed below) including Dr Antonova herself.
