Benebell Wen,

author of Holistic Tarot

"The Neuroscience of Tarot is an essential addition to the tarot reader’s library. Learn how your brain works when engaging in psychic predictions or neuroforecasting. Dr. Ramakrishnan masterfully applies neuroscience concepts to the art of divination and reading tarot. This book offers invaluable insights into how a scientist might observe, hypothesize, and investigate the realm of intuition. Truly one of the most exciting and groundbreaking books to come out of the tarot world in a long while."
