Effect of prefrontal transcranial magnetic stimulation on spontaneous truth-telling.




Abstract
Brain-process foundations of deceptive behaviour have become a subject of intensive study both in fundamental and applied neuroscience. Recently, utilization of transcranial magnetic stimulation has enhanced methodological rigour in this research because in addition to correlational studies causal effects of the distinct cortical systems involved can be studied. In these studies, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex has been implied as the brain area involved in deceptive behaviour.

2. You're optimistic

They'd have to have a brain before it could be stimulated into not lying.
