Polygraph examinations—more commonly referred to as lie detector tests—have long been a tool used by law enforcement to elicit confessions in criminal cases. These examinations involve asking the accused a serious of questions while monitoring certain bodily responses as they answer. The idea is that these responses show stress, which is a sign that someone is being untruthful.
The problem is that these examinations are unscientific and inaccurate. There are countless reasons why a person facing a lie detector test might have a stress response outside of lying. Unfortunately, many people submit to this type of testing without knowing the consequences.
