Symposium: Is There Science Underlying Truth Detection?

If you’re in Cambridge MA next week you might be interested in a symposium on brain imaging and deception detection, to be held at the American Academy of Arts & Science on 2 February, from 2-5pm:

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, and Harvard University are holding a symposium on the science, law, and ethics of using brain imaging technology to detect deception. The program will focus on the status of the science behind detecting deception using fMRI. Presenters will also consider the legal, ethical, and public policy implications of using brain imaging for lie detection.

The symposium is free, but advanced registration is required (more details here).
