Politics of Mind Control 

Many believe that Democrats and Republicans (or Whigs and Tories, etc.) are 'wired' differently. Now there may be some evidence. MRI scans of Dems and Repubs while they watch ads for candidates show different results. Or they may...the article blabs about not drawing conclusions until the study is complete, which is correct, but a bloody stupid thing to write when you're reporting it in the New York Times (i.e., people are going to draw conclusions because it's been written up, no matter what you say).

This is a lot less interesting a study than it is kindof scary: as ad campaigns get increasingly well-targeted, how long until it's just competing mind control techniques?
