Connecting you with the University of Missouri’s innovative research and creative activity

The correlation between spirituality and health has long been recognized by many major religions, but proving that relationship is relatively new ground for scientific research. Exploring this ground is the calling of Dr. Brick Johnstone, professor and practicing neuropsychologist at MU’s Health Psychology department. From his clinical work at the Rusk Rehabilitation Center to his recent fellowship at Princeton’s Center for Theological Inquiry, Johnstone reaches across disciplines to expand our understanding of health and well-being, and he comes at it from a surprising direction: “The sciences absolutely have to be guided by the humanities,” he declares. “The humanities are much better at identifying the deep meanings and help get at the basis of human experience.”
