The Brain and spirituality on the radio waves

National Public Radio Is This Your Brain On God? is a five-part (full week) look (or should I say “listen”) at how spiritual experience can be understood. Listen to the radio feeds, and also check out a couple of videos, as well as some illustrations of the geography of the brain.

The radio correspondent is Barbara Bradley Hagerty, who handles the religion beat at NPR. She has a new book, Fingerprints of God: The Search for the Science of Spirituality. There are some excerpts of the book available on the NPR site.

I’ve only caught part of today’s broadcast so I am going to have to hold back on any definitive opinions, but this is a subject that fascinates me so I will catch up tonight and follow the rest of the week.
