Religion and the Brain

The following is taken from an article on memetics I once FTPed from
mantis.co.uk:

		As an aside, there actually seems to be a very small chunk of brain
tissue that might be
		called a "religious stabilizing module". In rare cases where this area
was destroyed, the
		victims could change what seemed to be deeply held religious beliefs
several times a week.

I think the neurologist Michael Gazzaniga is connected with this; does
anybody know where I can find the original article?

Thanks in advance,
