Kyla Pate Pinocchio's Arm Abstract Question, Variables, &
Hypothesis... Question: How can you detect changes in the brain when a person is telling the truth and when a person is lying?
Hypothesis: If changes in the brain can be used to determine if someone is telling the truth or lying, then they will be detected using the activities in the body that the brain are in control of. Background Research.... The brain is one of the most complex organs in our body.
" There may be unique areas in the brain involved in deception", " There may be unique area's in the brain involved in truth telling" said Dr. Faro, director of the Functional Brain Imaging Center.
"We found a total of seven areas of activation in the deception (group), we found four areas of activity in the truth-telling arm."
Functional magnetic resonance imaging is one of the most recently developed forms of brain imaging or nueroimaging. Conclusion... Everything in the world can be associated with science in some way. Lying which is discouraged action in most cultures, can also be related to science. In this project you will explore the way the brain can be related to science. You will discover the workout the brain gets when it moves from truth telling to lying. Once you understand the brain you can understand how it can be related to a lie detector test. Materials List..... Volunteers (at least 10 and olderthan age 7)
