    The effect of mindfulness meditation on time perception.Robin Ss Kramer, Ulrich W. Weger & Dinkar Sharma - 2013 - Consciousness and Cognition 22 (3):846-852.
    Research has increasingly focussed on the benefits of meditation in everyday life and performance. Mindfulness in particular improves attention, working memory capacity, and reading comprehension.

One account of this effect is that the cognitive pressure triggered by such threat drains the same cognitive resources that are implicated in the respective task.
