ABSTRACT
The article examines the historical background of brain-imaging technologies, such as the functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI). The test and external conditions regarding the ethical considerations for imaging the brain functions were taken into account. Key information about electroencephalography and legal aspects and federal regulation of FMRI-based lie detection is further presented.
