Religious fundamentalism correlated with higher error sensitivity
Higher sensitivity to errors is observed in religious fundamentalism - short science articles

Scientists have started to explore the relationship between religious fundamentalism and cognitive processes. In a preliminary investigation, it was found that religious fundamentalism is associated with a intense processing of error-related stimuli.
The research was conducted in 34 participants in whom the EEG recordings were conducted to examine their brain activity while performing a Stroop task in which a person has to identify the colour in which a word in written and not the word itself. Researchers observed that people who were religious fundamentalist show an increased N400 response to error related words which is an electrical pattern of brain activity seen due to the processing of unexpected or inappropriate information.
