God spot
 n.— «That conflicts not only with the limbic-system theory but also with earlier reports of a so-called God Spot that derived partly from work conducted on epileptics. These reports suggested that religiosity originates specifically in the brain’s temporal lobe, and that religious visions are the result of epileptic seizures that affect this part of the brain.» —“Where angels no longer fear to tread” Economist (United Kingdom) Mar. 19, 2008.
