Scientists at Temple University create FMRI scans: an innovative new way of seeking out truth
FMRI scans being used as lie detecting machines. Researched by Dr.’s Scott Faro and Feroze Mohamed at Temple University, this new test may prove to be much more accurate that the Polygraph that is used today. FMRI scans allow doctors and scientists to view the activity of the brain during the scan. As Faro and Mohamed point out, the brain has to work much harder to try and lie than to just tell the truth because it has to suppress memories when it lies. This could be the key to using the fMRI as a lie detecting machine.
