Near-Death Experience - Kevin Nelson

We started this segment with three women describing near-death experiences. People who have had them frequently talk about them as profound, life-altering events full of rare insight into one of life's biggest mysteries.

But Kevin Nelson offers another way of thinking about them. He has a scientific explanation of the experiences. Kevin Nelson is a physician and professor of neurology at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. His new book is called The Spiritual Doorway in the Brain: A Neurologist's Search for The God Experience. Kevin Nelson was in Lexington, Kentucky.
