Out-Of-Body Experience / Near Death Experience books
Life After Life by Raymond A. Moody, Jr. MD (this was one of the first books written on the subject on Near Death Experience at the time). Dr. Moody enlisted hundreds of people that he tested in the mid-1970's before this subject was accepted. With Near Death Experience(NDE's) they actually found activity in the pre-Frontal cortex(if I remember correctly).
For those who are familiar with NDE's or Out-of-Body Experiences those who go through this experience the view of a bright light and a life review. During Dr. Moody's tests, the participant's Pre-Frontal Cortex was stimulated and the results were interesting. The findings were when the area was stimulated it would create the feeling of entering the light tunnel, however, the most interesting part of the study was, that they could not explain the loss of time people experienced.
Currently, there is a group called International Association for Near Death Experience(IANDS): http://iands.org/home.html
On the following page listed above a Training Video on how to present this subject. Videos both for individuals and corporations are available. This would be a good resource for Science of People if they have not been introduced to how to Near Death Experiences affect people's brain activity.
