Product Overview

In this provocative study, Dr. Michael R. Trimble tackles the interrelation among brain function (especially language), neuropsychiatric disorders, and religion. By studying the breakdown of language in several neuropsychiatric disorders, scientists can identify areas of the brain involved with metaphor, poetry, music, and religion. Drawing on evidence from neuroanatomy, Trimble argues that religious experiences, including rituals and belief in God, are biologically derived and a product of our brains.
