Wandering minds associated with aging cells

rstanding the link between mind wandering and cell health to get a better understanding of whether there is causality and reversibility," said Epel. "For example, does reducing mind wandering promote better cell health? Or are these relationships just reflective of some underlying long-standing characteristics of a person?"

"Results suggest the possibility that the attitude of acceptance of negative experiences might be one of the factors that promotes greater ability to be more present - to be okay with one's current experience and not avoid the unpleasant aspects of everyday experiences," she said.

"A number of emotion theories suggest that greater attentional control leads to less suppression of negative emotions, and thus less of the rebound effect of unsuccessful suppression," said Wendy Berry Mendes, PhD, associate professor and Sarlo/Ekman Endowed Chair of Emotion at UCSF and co-author on this study. "Alternatively, attentional control may help us interpret emotions in a more constructive way, what we call 'positive reappraisals.' Such styles of thinking have been associated with healthy physiological states."

In addition to Epel, Mendes and Puterman, co-authors on this study include Jue Lin, UCSF research biochemist in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics; Elizabeth Blackburn, PhD, UCSF molecular biologist and Alanie Lazaro, UCSF laboratory manager in the Department of Psychiatry.

Research on telomeres, and the enzyme that makes them, was pioneered by three Americans, including Blackburn, who co-discovered the telomerase enzyme in 1985. The scientists received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009 for this work.

Epel, Blackburn and Lin are co-founders of Telome Health Inc, a telomere measurement company.
