The Neurosciences of Religion: Meditation, Entheogens, Mysticism

The Neurosciences of Religion: Meditation, Entheogens, Mysticism | Intuition and the Spanda Principle | Scoop.it

A good summary -jero

 

"In this lecture, we are going to examine the human brain directly to see how the cognitive neurosciences try to understand and explain religious and spiritual experiences. And we note first that there has been a tremendous amount of new research and new insights into the working of the human brain in the last few decades. Powerful new tools also allow us to examine the function of healthy human brains and these tools have recently been used to study the brain functions of Buddhist monks, Catholic nuns, Pentecostals speaking in tongues, and others."
