Description of this data

While neuroscience has described several hemispheric and interhemispheric differences in meditators (e.g., Davidson et al., 2003; Fox et al., 2014; Luders et al., 2012), there has been little recent work investigating how these differences influence behavior from a laterality perspective. In this data, experienced practitioners and novices of the Falun Gong qigong practice (a form of meditation) performed the Emotion Lateralized Attention Network Task (ELANT) (Crump et al., 2013) both before and after a session of the Falun Gong exercises. This version of the LANT incorporated cartoon faces with happy, neutral, or angry emotions as spatial cues. The data also contains resting heart rate variability (HRV) taken both before and after the Falun Gong exercises.
