Politics and the Brain

Dr. Ron Bonnstetter has shown significant new results that demonstrate the brain activation patterns when people are making political choices.  He is using live 3-D imaging of frontal gamma activation patterns, in response to politically-charged stimuli.  His results are described in the following broadcast:

This is significant because it shows the brain’s pre-conscious responses that shape and determine individual feelings and decisions.  Dr. Bonnstetter has shown that while Democrats respond most strongly to things that they do not like, Republicans tend to respond more strongly to things that they like.  This shows a fundamental difference in individual decision-making patterns.  This helps us to understand political leanings and decisions amidst the confusion and questions that are being asked.
