ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of function magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to determine truthfulness. The company No Lie MRI, operated by biologist Joel Huizenga, offers comparisons of fMRI scans to prove clients are telling the truth. Hank Greely, director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences at Stanford University, comments on the need for proof of the technique. Bioethicist Jonathan Marks comments on the possible uses of fMRI scans by authorities.
