Abstract:

This project supports collaboration with Professor John T. Cacciopo of the Department of Psychology, University of Chicago in his investigations to determine whether semantic conditioning can be used to produce a bidirectional vasomotorphysiological response that otherwise would not occur zero baserate, and if this work is successful to assist him in the implementation and evaluation of the application of these tools in the detection of deception. This work brings to bear standards of independent scientific evaluation of experimental efforts to detect deception consonant with the enunciated criteria in the Report of the NAS-NRC Committee to Evaluate the Scientific Evidence on the Polygraph. The project also involves the critical assessment of various methodologies for the detection of deception.
