for the Study
The Center For The Study Of Religion And The Brain
is dedicated to the understanding of religious experience in the light
of the cognitive sciences. It is a forum for exploring the relationship
between faith and cognition, religion and consciousness, faith and intuition,
the role of the senses in religious experience, spirituality and memory
and much more.
Selected articles from the Center's Quarterly Newsletter, "Synapse."

Over the last twenty years, a growing list of scientists and sciences
have turned their attention to the mysteries of the brain.
The list of disciplines that make brain and cognition
a part of their focus includes psychology, medicine, biology, neuroscience,
philosophy, artificial intelligence, anthropology, sociology, religion,
education, and even quantum physics. What has happened is really quite
simple: The neuroscience made such huge strides toward unlocking and discovering
mysteries of the human brain and nervous system that the flood of information
and insight cascaded into every aspect of human inquiry. To answer questions
like, "What is consciousness?" demands the participation
of many thinkers from many perspectives. The CSRB works to bring the diversity
of thinking about the brain and religion into the same arena.
