ABSTRACT from the full study:

Background

While religious faith remains one of the most significant features of human life, little is known about its relationship to ordinary belief at the level of the brain.

This is pretty fascinating. I'm not literate enough in all the language to completely understand some of the details, but the findings about parts of the brain being stimulated in regards to religious belief are pretty interesting. I have some questions (thoughts) about psycho-pharmacology and what could possibly be belief centers in the brain, but I'll wait till I re-read this again before just spouting out about things.

Sebuah kajian yang menarik walaupun saya tidak fasih langsung dengan hampir semua istilah yang digunakan.

Sebagaimana keupayaan menguasai bahasa tinggi yang dikatakan telah siap wujud di dalam diri setiap manusia (instilled), begitu juga lah dengan kepercayaan kepada Tuhan. Hasil kajian mendapati golongan kanak-kanak dan remaja mempercayai kewujudan Tuhan. Namun akibat pengaruh budaya dan faktor-faktor lain, pemikiran ini mungkin berubah apabila semakin meningkat dewasa.

More fascinating contributions to the nature of belief in general and some incremental steps and revolutionary work in the neuropsychology of religion.

Neat that Goodreads provides for cataloging of papers as well.

The study was poorly done. The book was a waste of time. Proved nothing.
