Major French TV documentary features Silver Santé Study
The Silver Santé Study’s research into mediation and its impact on the brain in later life was featured in a major French documentary that was broadcast on France 5 in May.
Project Coordinator, Dr Gaël Chételat, was interviewed in the hour-long ‘Enquete de Santé’ programme called ‘Médiation: Une revolution dans le cerveau’ which explored the potential health benefits of meditation.
Dr Chételat explained how the Silver Santé study is investigating whether mental training techniques, such as meditation and language-learning, can help improve mental health and well-being in later life. She also took part in a studio discussion with other experts and answered questions about meditation from viewers. Dr Antoine Lutz, who leads the meditation work package of the Study, was also interviewed during the programme.
