Scientists have identified the part of the brain that teachers use to detect when their pupils do not understand what they are being taught.

They say their findings provide significant insight into the brain processes that allow a teacher to understand a student's learning.
They also found that other regions of the frontal lobe play important roles.
More than half of adult Americans report they have had a spiritual experience that changed their lives.

Hear what they have discovered in this controversial field, as the science of spirituality continues to evolve.
