If truth be told, magnetic interference with the brain makes it impossible to lie. At least, that’s what a group of Estonian researchers are claiming.
They found that when magnets were applied to either the right or left side of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, found directly behind your forehead, it made you lie or tell the truth, depending on which side was stimulated.
When magnetic interference was directed at another part of the brain, the parietal lobe, the subjects’ decision-making remain unchanged.
‘Spontaneous choice to lie more or less can be influenced by brain stim

It doesnt really matter if you can lie or not, there is always a way to evade the truth.

Well it was just a matter of time. It's been known for awhile that placing magnets in specific parts can make you not be able to speak etc. It was just a matter of further experimentation to find out where to put them to make people not be able to lie. I guess this might lead to something more reliable than the current lie detector test but at worst case scenario leads to horrible big brother scenarios.

We are bombarded with magnetic fields most of the time because electricity traveling through a wire creates a magnetic field. Hmmm ..I wonder if answering your phone to the left or right makes a difference.
