An Conventional Methodology for Brain Finger Printing

M. Ramasubramanian, TKS. Rathish Babu, VRS. Rajesh Kumar


Brain fingerprinting is based on finding that the brain generates a unique brain wave pattern when a person encounters a familiar stimulus use of functional magnetic resonance imaging in lie detection derives from studies suggesting that persons asked to lie show different patterns of brain activity than they do when being truthful. Issues related to the use of such evidence in courts are discussed. In the field of criminology, a new lie detector has been developed in the United States of America.This invention is supposed to be the best lie detector available as on date and is said to detect even smooth criminals who pass the polygraph test (the conventional lie detector test) with ease. The new method employs brain waves which are, useful in detecting whether the person subjected to the test, remembers finer details of crime. According to the experts, even if the person willingly suppresses the necessary information, the brain wave is sure to trap him.
