It is interesting, but there's been a lot of issues over the last few years with the reliability of fMRI studies so I'm a bit skeptical.

I'm taking an fMRI course at the moment so I'm learning all about said issues. The voodoo correlations paper was actually published by the department where I'm taking the course. Certainly this is just the beginning of looking at these beliefs in literally a whole new way.
