Researchers Find the Locus in the Brain Responsible for Republicans - Science

In this study, 61 students had MRI scans taken of their brains after filling out a survey designed to measure their ability to tolerate the uncertainty of future negative events.

People who struggle to cope with uncertainty or the ambiguity of potential future threats may have an unusually large striatum, an area of the brain already associated with general anxiety disorder, according to research published by the American Psychological Association.

"Uncertainty and ambiguity of potential future threats are central to understanding the generation of anxiety and anxiety disorders," said lead author Justin Kim, PhD, of Dartmouth College. "Our research suggests a relationship between an individual's ability to deal with this uncertainty and the volume of gray matter within a specific area of the brain."

The research was published in the APA journal Emotion.

Science Daily:  Region in brain found to be associated with fear of uncertain future

We see the uncertainty in the banning of climate change despite overwhelming evidence but the most immediate example is how they spend more than half of everything on a ridiculously-large military so they can solidify the illusion nothing will ever change.  It's patently obvious that doesn't work and yet they cling to that ludicrous model assiduously.

The research may give an indication of how great their fear and how little they can do to escape it.  In effect, they're trapped by their own minds.

Ed:  the Rockhouse lives in constant fear of the future!

Like hell we do.  We rejoice in it since we know what's coming if we don't let the fears of Republicans fuck it up.  They're loud but inside they're just quivering Jell-O and, as you have seen, they're never the ones who actually get sent to fight.  Even their generals don't go.
