Stuart Judge will be speaking on the “The Neuroscience of Faith”.
Friday 13th at 7.30 pm at St Andrew’s Church, Linton Road.
I will present a selection of observations old and new that address the issue of whether something special goes on in our brains when we engage in religious thinking or have religious experience. Examples will include ecstatic experience in epilepsy, near death experiences, and imaging of the brains of normal subjects that attempt to capture neural correlates of religious experience or inclination. I will discuss what one can safely conclude from such data.
