Brain Wars: NDEs help define mind-brain relationship
A new book by neuroscience researcher Mario Beauregard, deals with the relationship of the mind to the brain. Brain Wars: The scientific battle over the existence of the mind and the proof that will change the way we live our lives presents near-death experiences as one of several lines of evidence that "strongly challenge the mainstream neuroscientific view that mind and consciousness result solely from brain activity". Dr. Beauregard is associate research professor at the University of Montreal Neuroscience Research Center.
An excerpt on NDEs from the book, titled "Near Death, Explained", appeared recently at Salon.com. A strong critique by PZ Myers, a biologist and skeptic at the University of Minnesota Morris, was later published, to which Dr. Beauregard responded.
