Dr. Andrew Newberg

Andrew Newberg, M.D. returns to Common Threads to continue the conversation on his book, How Enlightenment Changes Your Brain.

Dr. Andrew Newberg studies the relationship between brain function and various mental states. He is a pioneer in the neurological study of religious and spiritual experiences, a field known as “neurotheology.” His research includes taking brain scans of people in prayer, meditation, rituals, and trance states, in an attempt to better understand the nature of religious and spiritual practices and attitudes.
