This talk will discuss our current understanding how various religious and spiritual practices and ideas affect the human brain. Brain scan studies of different religious and spiritual practices will be described as well as other studies that help us understand the impact of religion on the brain. Finally, the emerging field of neurotheology will be considered as an integrated approach towards understanding how the brain and spirituality is related.
