Spirituality in Science

We recently published a new issue of the Charité NeuroScience (CNS) Newsletter, bringing you the latest on Spirituality in Science.

Is spirituality a topic that neuroscience should shun? We don’t think so! That’s why the September issue of the CNS newsletter is taking a closer look. Besides exploring what religiosity looks like in your brain (pages 3 and 13), we invite you on a journey through the world of psychoactive drugs and plants (pages 6 and 7). But, as our frequent readers know, that’s not where we stop. We looked at what religion itself (page 11) and several “spiritual” practices can do for your mental (and physical) health, including fasting (page 14), meditation (page 5) and yoga (page 12). As a special treat for you, we also sat down with neuroscientists from Berlin to find out how they relate to faith (pages 8-9).

While some people struggle with bringing the spiritual and the worldly together in the workplace, we don’t! In fact, this issue features one of the longest career sections in the history of our newsletter. We are excited to cover an interview with a neuroscientist-turned-yoga-teacher (pages 16-17), a recap of this year’s BioBusiness Summer School and annual Neurasmus meeting (page 18) and show you how to use activating teaching methods (page 19). And if you don’t agree with our take, we will even show you how to call BS (page 20).

Want to find out more? Grab a copy of this issue, lean back and enjoy. Amen, Namaste, Salem Aleikum, Shalom and happy reading!
