Session Title:
I've Been Dying to Tell You: The Neurobiology of Near Death Experiences
 
Session Description: Near Death Experiences (NDEs) have been the subject of speculation as to their true nature. The religious often hold them up as "proof" of an afterlife. But why do some on the brink of death have them, while many others do not? A number of plausible neurological explanations have been suggested, but these too remain controversial.
