    Thank you for providing an anatomy background on the brain and the flow chart on yoga and creativity. It would be great to advance the current knowledge of changes to the CNS including the brain, brainstem and spinal column. For instance, what are the effects on the brain after being an inversion for an extended period of time? There should be a coalition of yogis and scientists who rigorously pursue an understanding of cellular and molecular changes.
