Book TV: Andrew Newberg "How God Changes Your Brain"

I caught the end of this a little while on CSPAN-2 - very cool episode with some nice science of the brain changes that come with meditation and prayer of various types.
Andrew Newberg examined brain scans of memory patients and web-based surveys of people's religious and spiritual experiences. The correlations he found led him to conclude that an active spiritual life physically changes the brain.
This is only a snippet of a longer episode, but here is a taste (no embed allowed).
