The isoprenoid pathway was assessed in atheistic and spiritually in clined individuals. The pathway was also assessed in individuals with differing hemispheric dominance to assess whether hemispheric dominance has a correlation with spiritual and atheistic tendency. HMG CoA reductase activity, serum digoxin, RBC membrane Na+-K+ ATPase activity, serum magnesium, and tyrosine/tryptophan catabolic patterns were assessed in spiritual/atheistic individuals and in those differ ng hemispheric… 
NeuroTheology and Its Convergence with NeuroQuantology
The principles of neuroscience assume and predict that all experiences are generated by brain activity as a consequence of structural patterns. A convergence of methodologies and measurements
The Harribance Effect as Pervasive Out-of-Body Experiences: NeuroQuantal Evidence with More Precise Measurements
A historical summary is presented of the published and unpublished measurements of the physical changes associated with Sean Harribance while he accurately discerned recondite information about
Hearts Strangely Warmed (and Cooled): Emotional Experience in Religious and Atheistic Individuals
In light of neurophysiological evidence suggesting a link between hemispheric dominance and religious preference, three studies tested whether atheists and religious individuals process emotions
The 3 H and BMSEST Models for Spirituality in Multicultural Whole-Person Medicine
TLDR
2 theoretical models that provide common ground for further exploration of the role of spirituality in medicine are presented and suggest a multidimensional and multidisciplinary approach based on universal concepts and a foundation in both the art and science of medicine.
Quantitative Discrepancy in Cerebral Hemispheric Temperature Associated with "Two Consciousnesses" is Predicted by NeuroQuantum Relations
NeuroQuantological principles predict that equations applicable within the microcosmic world should also be valid within macroscopic brain space. We tested the hypothesis that the human brain exists
Spirituality in Nursing and Health-Related Literature
TLDR
The purpose for conducting this concept analysis was to examine how spirituality has been used within the current body of nursing and health-related literature, clarify the meaning of spirituality by discovering what this concept's current critical attributes/characteristics are, and propose a definition of spirituality based on the concept analysis findings.
Cerebral Activity and Source Profiles Accompanying the Process of Non-Locality
TLDR
It is suggested that experiences of non-locality involve confluence within the right parahippocampal region and are translated for their personal and linguistic equivalents within specific left hemispheric structures.
Concurrent Photon Emission, Changes in Quantitative Brain Activity over the Right Hemisphere, and Alterations in the Proximal Geomagnetic Field While Imagining White Light
In order to replicate and extend the observation that inner light during meditation was associated with specific changes in brain activity, quantitative EEG measurements were completed simultaneously
The Effect of Religion on the Effectiveness of Ecological Advertising
Attitudes toward ecological consumption can trigger environmentally responsible intentions and behaviors. Understanding how ecological messages can influence attitudes is essential to mitigate
INCREASED FEELINGS OF THE SENSED PRESENCE AND INCREASED GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY AT THE TIME OF THE EXPERIENCE DURING EXPOSURES TO TRANSCEREBRAL WEAK COMPLEX MAGNETIC FIELDS
TLDR
The results suggest the culturally and historically ubiquitous phenomena of sensed presences are generated by right hemispheric processes that once enhanced by a variety of stimuli, including weak complex magnetic fields, can be encouraged by increased global geomagnetic activity.

Endogenous alkaloids in the brain of rats loaded with tyrosine/tryptophan & in the serum of patients of neurodegenerative & psychiatric disorders.
TLDR
Since binding sites for morphine, nicotine and strychnine exist in the brain, it is possible that they may have some role in neuronal function and presence of these alkaloids in the serum of patients of neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders is being reported for the first time.

TLDR
The identity of digoxin thus extracted from rat brain has been established by reaction with digoxin antibody and by its inhibition of Na(+)-K+ ATPase activity.
