SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — University of Utah researchers studying how religion affects the brain are gearing up to study the minds of Mormons who have finished serving on missions. The Salt Lake Tribune reports researchers will encourage returned missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to undergo brain scans. At the same time, they’ll be asked to view faith-related images and recall spiritual experiences they may have had. Researcher Jeff Anderson says only a handful of similar studies have been done before. He and his team are seeking 15 to 20 young men and women in the 20s to serve as volunteers for the study. The project will be formally introduced during a Feb. 28 seminar at the University of Utah’s Clinical Neurosciences Center.
