Book Description

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.

"...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....

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent scientific book July 3 2013
By Maxim Sokolovsky - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book may be useful for scientific explorations and for applied detection deception. I fond of this book because it contains a plenty of experimentally proved information and a tons of good scientific ideas. This book extremely helpful for field examiners and forensic psychologists because it helps to understand most of arguments which may has been offered against using lie detection in the court. But it is a scientific book. So one needs at least basic knowledge of detection deception, exploratory techniques and statistical methods.
5.0 out of 5 stars THE BIBLE ! Aug. 29 2013

For all who conduct research on the Concealed Information Test, this is THE BIBLE.
For all non-scientists who are interested in the scientific and applied detection of concealed memory contents, this book is the best possible introduction!
