The study of correlations of neural phenomena with the subjective experience of spirituality, attained through means such as the consumption of hallucinogenic drugs.
Neurotheology, also known as spiritual neuroscience, attempts to explain religious experience and behaviour in neuroscientific terms. It is the study of correlations of neural phenomena with subjective experiences of spirituality and hypotheses to explain these phenomena. Proponents of neurotheology say there is a neurological and evolutionary basis for subjective experiences traditionally categorized as spiritual or religious. The field has formed the basis of several popular science books and has been the subject of criticism in the scientific press.
