Lie Detection Brief

Posted by on Thursday, December 8, 2016 in Education, Lie Detection, Neuroimaging, Neurolaw, Recent Neurolaw-related Papers, Uncategorized.

The Research Network is pleased to announce the release of a new brief, fMRI and Lie Detection.

Some studies have reported the ability to detect lies, with a high degree of accuracy, by analyzing brain data acquired using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). But is this new technology ready for its day in court?

The new brief provides answers to some of our most pressing research questions, such as:

●       Can fMRI reliably detect lies?
●       What are the potential legal applications and limitations of fMRI lie detection?
●       Can subjects use countermeasures to successfully conceal a lie?
●      Which factors can create cause for concern about experimental validity?
