Contemplative Neurology

Study of neurological underpinnings of ultimate true human qualities arising out of brain functioning which until now traditionally had not been under realm of neurology. Some of these human qualities include empathy, compassion, altruism, forgiveness, charity, happiness, ecstasy, meditation etc. which make us true human beings.
Contemplative neurology is studying changes in brain as evidenced by fMRI, DTI, structural neurophysiological, molecular and genetic studies of these metacognitive practises. The bigger question of self-awareness and consciousness are the ultimate questions to be answered.
