Luminous Brain

"Dr. Ferguson and his colleagues are working to pioneer new understandings about the emergence of spiritual and religious behaviors from human biology. The goals of this work are to enhance scientific cultural knowledge about spirituality and religion, and to translate these understandings into insights that can enhance personalized and precision medicine."

"Ultimately, the science of neurospirituality is about illuminating the biological core of our spiritual instincts as humans, gaining an understanding of their operations, and facilitating a developmental transition from spiritually-instinctual impulses toward spiritually-intelligent agency."
