Science and Meditation-- Academic studies, Articles, other?

Please point me in the direction of any scientific materials on meditation that you like. 

An example of the sort of thing I'm interested in is Jud Brewer's work using neuroimaging to compare brain activity in meditators and non meditators, e.g., https://www.pnas.org/content/108/50/20254.short.  

I'm not a scientist by training and so lack a lot of the background knowledge that would make stuff like this an easy read.  So, if you feel like pointing me in the right direction or providing takes on an article, I'm interested and grateful to hear.  

Best,

Ben

Thank you for the resources Chris

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4253124/, this article in particular seems like a nice place to start due to the historical component (with lots of useful citations).
