← Scientific evidence proves why healers see the 'aura' of people

I would like to see a scientific explanation for why people believe in the supernatural. They aren't hearing or seeing something that isn't there, but they still "sense" that it's there. There should be a neurological correlate, shouldn't there? I remember a study in which stimulating a certain brain region caused people to "sense" that there was someone behind them, specifically behind them and to the right.
