Lie detector: Heart Imaging


Lie detector: Heart Imaging:  You know i was just thinking about lie detectors and i came to the realization that lie detectors wouldn't work on all situations...What i think will work better is if they could somehow invent a machine that could view the heart beating and the machine could register when a heart increases heart beat...Because a person's heart beat will increase if that person it telling a lie...

This way you can catch real criminals...

Pumpi, they've had tests that show the heart for years. It's called an echogram. I've had them. It would be too invasive and expensive. Plus, there is no scientific evidence that shows a rapid heartbeat indicates guilt. Anyway, that's what a polygraph (also known as a lie detector machine) does. It measures the change is physiology in the human body which includes your heatbeat, bloodpressure and perspiration level. What did you think a lie detector was? There is a baseline for telling the truth which is established by asking questions. A deviation from that baseline might mean the person taking the test is lying. But it might not. (I watch a lot of detective shows.)

You did? I remember reading articles in the 1980s on this subject.   Pumpi, that's why since they are not admissible as evidence in a court of law. I can't say if this is a federal law or just state (someone else will have to answer that for me) A person's state of mind can alter his physical condition considerably. A sociopath can often control his response where someone who is confused might overreact.

@jxp, it varies by jurisdiction and state. If you are famous, the results may be "admitted" on the evening news (and the 'net), long before any trial.

Wanted to mention, when I said "invasive" referring to the echo, I was talking about privacy, not that the test is painful or medically invasive. (I actually had health insurance at one time - don't get me started on that subject!!) If anyone needs one, they're painless & interesting, sort of like an ultrasound. At least they proved that all those men I dated in my younger days were wrong. I DO have a heart!
