Brain scan lie-detector not ready for prime time

Close but no cigar.

I wrote about this technology and application on 06-May and stated that I was surprised that it took this long for it to be rolled-out.  That said, it seems that I was premature in my celebration of science.  According to a 01-Jun article published on Wired.com, the fMRI brain scan lie-detector technology does not (yet) measure up to the standard of evidence  in the United States.

Oh well.  I’ll trumpet this accomplishment in a year or two.  Stay tuned.
