Sign post - Truth/LiesHow easily can one person tell when another person is lying to them? It is a question that has been investigated for the better part of a century. This special issue will focus on knowledge that has accumulated over the years and on the questions that researchers are trying to answer today. Can an untrained individual detect another’s “high-stakes” lie through passive observation? How much better is a trained individual at detecting deception when actively interviewing a witness or when interrogating a suspect? Are polygraph tests useless aids for detecting deception, as they are often perceived to be? And what might fMRI have to offer in this area? This special issue seeks research articles that investigate these, and other issues related to the detection of deception.
