  • Lie detectors are better at detecting lies than people but there is a Receiver Operating Characteristic that must be looked at to fully understand lie detectors and their interpreters. Moreover the research on fMRI and lie detectors is questionable at best. Elena Rusconi writes "[fMRI] neither meets basic legal nor scientific standards…overall conclusion that fMRI is unlikely to constitute a viable lie detector for criminal courts."  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3781577/

  • I wonder what career path is more stable: forensic computer work or forensic psychology? Or a 3rd, anthropology (as work for criminal investigation)… I'm kind of contemplating those. I've been told the computer field of forensics isn't a good work field, though.

  • Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us

  • The lecturer tries to be funny

  • I think he is lying about the secret services his body language totally contradicts the words!

  • It´s bullshit that 80% that our communication is non-verbal. It all comes down to an old missunderstanding of what a researcher namned Albert Mehrabian was saying. Look it upp Tim!

  • 👍very interesting subject, funny guy.

  • concur,non verbal communication is so sad
