About this title


Is the "Brain Wired for God?" Is there a genetic, neurological, or evolutionary basis for religious belief?

These questions and more are answered by one of the pioneers in the field of neuroscience and neuropsychology, Dr.R. Joseph. Dr. Joseph was the first to demonstrate neuroplasticity and recovery of neural function in primates, the first to conclusively demonstrate the effects of hormones on sex differences in cognition, and the first to conclusively demonstrate the role of early environmental influences on learning and memory--researched published in the 1970s and early 1980s. Dr.Joseph also shares the distinction, along with that of Drs. Newberg, Persinger, and a handful of others, of being one of the true pioneers in the field of NeuroTheology. In this amazing book, Dr. Joseph brings to bear over 30 years of expertise in the brain sciences to create one of the most unique books of our time--indeed, some say, it may even be ahead of its time.

From the Publisher:

In the 2nd edition of his classic neuroscience textbooks (1996), Dr. Joseph stunned the scientific community by including a monograph length chapter in which he explained there was a scientific, evolutionary, and neurological foundation for religious and spiritual experience. This chapter not only caused a sensation, but has recently inspired others to write "popular" trade books in which all of Dr. Joseph's ideas, theories, research, and discoveries have been repeated. It is said that mimicry is the best form of flattery. However, we say: why accept mimicry or those who falsely lay claim to the discoveries of others, when you can have the real thing? And in this regard we are pleased to present the 3rd printing of Dr. Joseph's book: The Transmitter to God.
