Christianity strongly encourages its believers to surrender to God and to view themselves from God’s perspective. Both non-religious and Christian Chinese participants were scanned while they performed the self-referential. Findings suggest that adopting or growing up with Christian beliefs might result in weakened neural encoding of stimulus self-relatedness but might enhance neural activity in areas that mediate the evaluative process that is applied to self-referential stimuli.
