Summary and Info
Traditional techniques for detecting deception, such as the 'lie-detector test' (or polygraph), are based upon the idea that lying is associated with stress. However, it is possible that people telling the truth will experience stress, whereas not all liars will. Because of this, the validity of such methods is questionable. As an alternative, a knowledge-based approach known as the 'Concealed Information Test' has been developed which investigates whether the examinee recognizes secret information - for example a crime suspect recognizing critical crime details that only the culprit could know. The Concealed Information Test has been supported by decades of research, and is used widely in Japan. This is the first book to focus on this exciting approach and will be of interest to law enforcement agencies and academics and professionals in psychology, criminology, policing and law.Review"...I find Memory Detection outstanding. Unlike many edited volumes on the Way or Next Way forward, it fairly describes and critiques the extant research. In contrast to many edited volumes, all chapters are clearly written, without jarring changes in style.... --Dr. Richard Bloom, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott, Arizona, PsycCRITIQUES Book DescriptionThe Concealed Information Test is a memory detection method developed to investigate whether examinees recognize secret information - such as a crime suspect recognizing critical crime details that only the culprit could know.
