(The Spiritual Brain)

Human beings appear to have the potential of having spiritual brains and some already have such brains. Humans have the potential and in many cases have feeling deeply connected to something greater that themselves. Some develop intense beliefs about religion and God. In this course, we use modern neuroscience to offer insights into the meaning and nature of spirituality.

This set of 24 lectures examines the fascinating relationship between the human brain and spirituality. Relying on the latest theories and research from neuroscience, psychology, and other behavioral sciences, each lecture in this course addresses provocative questions about human spirituality.
