Larson (a Canadian) was the inventor of the polygraph, in 1921
-He was a medical student at the university of California when he invented the polygraph and became employed by the police department
-The lie detector used pulse rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate to determine if the subject was lying Manni Jacqueline Jacqueline Ghislaine Impact
