Abstract   Open Monitoring (OM) Meditation has received many researchers' attention in recent years. Compared with other meditation, especially with Focus Attention (FA) Meditation, OM has been shown more effective influence on some cognitive processes (such as pain and creative thinking) and anxiety. While, there was not consistent result in attention currently. Several other studies have explored neural mechanisms of OM with electroencephalograph and fMRI, especially in the default mode network, although inconsistent result was found. Finally, OM approach adopted in these studies showed obvious differences, such as whether or not starting from breath and maintaining attention. These results need to be further clarified in future studies, adopting more standardized approach.
