Brain Fingerprinting Laboratories, Inc. has developed and patented EEG/P300 based testing systems that determines, with extremely high accuracy, whether or not specific information is stored in a person's memory. The test measures individual brain-wave responses to relevant words, pictures or sounds presented by a computer. The measurements are recorded in fractions of a second after the stimulus is presented, before the subject is able to formulate or control a response. In a major milestone for the company, the results of this patented testing methodology have been ruled admissible in court as scientific evidence. The technology has many exciting applications in several very large markets: national security, medical diagnostics, advertising, insurance fraud and in the criminal justice system. In a Brain fingerprinting test, relevant words, pictures or sounds are presented to a subject by a computer in a series with irrelevant and control stimuli. The brainwave responses to these stimuli are measured using a patented headband equipped with EEG sensors. The data is then analyzed to determine if the relevant information is present in the subject's memory.
[...] This is what Brain fingerprinting testing detects scientifically, the presence or absence of In a Brain fingerprinting test, relevant words, pictures or sounds are presented to a subject by a computer in a series with irrelevant and control stimuli. The brainwave responses to these stimuli are measured using a patented the record stored in his brain matched critical details of the crime scene that only the perpetrator would know. Faced with an almost certain conviction and a probable death sentence, Grinder pled guilty in exchange for life in prison without the possibility parole. [...]
[...] The Role of Brain Criminal Proceedings Fingerprinting in The application of Brain Fingerprinting® testing in a criminal case involves four phases: investigation, interview, scientific testing, and adjudication. Of these four phases, only the third one is in the domain of science. The first phase is undertaken by a skilled investigator, the second by an interviewer who may be an investigator or a scientist, the third by a scientist, and the fourth by a judge and jury.This is similar to the forensic application of other sciences. [...]
[...] The entire Brain Fingerprinting system is under computer control, including presentation of the stimuli, recording of electrical brain activity, a mathematical data analysis algorithm that compares the responses to the three types of stimuli and produces a determination of "information absent" or "information present," and a statistical confidence level for this determination. Dr. Lawrence A. Farwell, Director and Chief Scientist of Brain Fingerprinting Laboratories, Inc. in collaboration with then SSA Drew C. Richardson, Ph.D., FSRTC, Laboratory Division, FBI applied the Brain Fingerprinting system in the detection of FBI new agent trainees using FBI-relevant probes. [...]
[...] (This new method for attaching electrodes is more convenient and comfortable for the subject as well as quicker and easier for the operator than previously available methods.) The software necessary to present the stimuli, collect the electroencephalographic data, and analyze the data have been developed by Brain Fingerprinting Laboratories. Brain Fingerprinting Testing Helps Bring a Serial Killer to Justice We viewed short phrases flashed on a computer screen, some of which were probe stimuli containing specific details of the crime that would be noteworthy only to the perpetrator. [...]
[...] The subject's brain responses are conveyed from the headband to the amplifiers, and then to the computer where they are analyzed. If the computer detects a brain P300/MERMER, this indicates that specific information relevant to the situation under investigation is stored in the brain. Figure:1 Stimulus Type: Target Irrelevant . Average brain responses recorded in response to three types of stimuli: Targets are phrases that are made relevant to the subject by instructing him/her to press a particular button when they appear.
