Early studies in the 1950s and 1960s used EEGs to study brain - wave - patterns correlated with spiritual states. During the 1980s Dr. Michael Persinger stimulated the temporal lobes of human subjects with a weak magnetic field. His subjects claimed to have a sensation of "an ethereal presence in the room". This work gained a lot of publicity at the time.Current studies use neuroimaging to localize brain - regions active, or differentially active, during spiritual experiences. David Wulf - , a psychologist at Wheaton College, Massachusetts, suggests that current brain - imaging studies, along with the consistency of spiritual experiences across cultures, history, and religions, "suggest a common core that is likely a reflection of structures and processes in the human brain - ".
