This law of attraction book’s outline and highlights:

The Spiritual Brain is about the connection between spirituality and the human brain.

“Prayer causes a specific pattern of activity in the brain—a pattern that can be detected by scanning technology . . .” This is what researchers found during a 1993 study of nuns practicing their so-called “centering prayer.”

Different spiritual practices affect the brain activity differently (cause activity in different parts of the brain). But general affects are similar.

“Prayer and meditation result in decreased heart rate and blood pressure, increased heart rate oscillation, decreased body metabolism, and hormonal changes. In addition, they result in increased serotonin, dopamine, and GABA and decreased cortisone and epinephrine.”

The book also briefly discusses the history of religion. “The first evidence of religious activity appears with the Neanderthals, who lived 20,000 to 100,000 years ago. Neanderthals had a much larger brain than prior human ancestors; particularly the cortex, or the outer part of the brain, was responsible for much of the higher thought processes.”
