New Movement in Neuroscience: A Purpose-Driven Life
Purpose in Life (PIL) is a research area that focuses on the interactions between mind and body and the powerful
ways in which emotional, mental, social, and spiritual factors can directly
affect health. It links the belief that your life has meaning and purpose to a
robust and persistently improved physiological health outcome—particularly as a
way to treat dementia, spinal cord injuries, stroke, and immunological and
cardiovascular issues that include but extend beyond the brain.
