My summery- When a person't Ideology is threatened. The reasoning aspect of our brain "shuts down", and our emotionive side of our brain "lights up". When the subject dealt with the inner conflict by denying the information. The brain's Reward centers "light up".

A response very similiar to a addicts brain when "getting a fix".

Leading me to wonder if Political ideology is really a psychological "drug addiction"?

And is it "Nature" or "Nurture"?
