I think this is an excellent project. If I were you, I would start with
a web search for the word "subliminal". I came up with the stuff below
after about ten seconds on www.infoseek.com:

The Subliminal Scares
by Jon Elliston
pscpdocs at aol.com
Do hidden stimuli pass stealthily though the doors of
perception? If so, do subliminal messages have any effect on the minds
they invade? In the late 1950s, the American public was
troubled with such questions after concealed ads were reportedly shown
to unwitting movie-goers. The initial obsession with
subliminals was short-lived, however, as the controversial practice of
advertising "below the threshold of awareness" was neither
proven effective nor widely used. But the seeds of subsequent
subliminal scares were planted, and the notion that what you
don't see may be as important as what you do see would rise again
and again into the American consciousness. This Dossier
special report explores the hysteria surrounding subliminal messages,
from the 1950s to the not-so-distant future.
