The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of brief meditation on memory. For this study, 49 participants were randomly assigned to either watch a meditation or a non-meditation video and then they were given a memory test. Participants were mostly recruited from Kwantlen’s Sona System and were KPU Psychology students or family and friends. We hypothesized that participants in the meditation group will score higher on the memory test than participants in the non-meditation group. Our findings did not support our hypothesis. The results of the t-test suggested that there was no significant difference between the two groups.
