Brain 'Fingerprinting': Latest Tool for Law Enforcement
Burke, Tod W., Law & Order
Brain fingerprinting is the latest in computer-based technology that allows investigators to identify or exonerate subjects based upon measuring brain-wave responses to crime related pictures or words presented on a computer screen.
According to Dr. Larry Farwell, the inventor of this technology, "Brain Fingerprinting is based on the principle that the brain is central to all human activities; it plans, executes and records information." Therefore, if a subject has information pertaining to a crime, this information is permanently recorded in the brain. With proper training and technology, the memories stored in the brain can be retrieved.
