Summary

Beliefs can be seen as forms of mental representations and they are one of the building blocks of our conscious thoughts. This volume provides an overview on how the neural correlates of beliefs mediate a range of explicit and implicit behaviors ranging from moral decision making to the practice of religion. Drawing inferences from philosophy, psychology, psychiatry, religion, and cognitive neuroscience, the book has important implications for understanding how different belief systems are implemented in the human brain.
