"Without any prior knowledge of the planned crime in our mock terrorism scenarios, we were able to identify 10 out of 12 terrorists and, among them, 20 out of 30 crime- related details," Rosenfeld said. "The test was 83 percent accurate in predicting concealed knowledge, suggesting that our complex protocol could identify future terrorist activity."

Rosenfeld is a leading scholar in the study of P300 testing to reveal concealed information. Basically, electrodes are attached to the scalp to record P300 brain activity -- or brief electrical patterns in the cortex -- that occur, according to the research, when meaningful information is presented to a person with "guilty knowledge."

Scary but also cool

Could p300 brain waves stop a crime before it starts? Like if someone was asked if they will steal again or try to harm a person that wronged them?

correlate P300 brain waves to guilty knowledge with 100 percent accuracy

The Romans had a protocol that I think could be appropriate. The over-zealous inventor of a hollow brass bull that was designed as a way to amuse crowds as it tortured a prisoner by imprisoning him while it was being heated over a fire (supposedly causing him to bellow like a bull as he died) was treated to the experience of his own invention.

Rosenfeld would be a good "quality control" double blind subject, who perhaps should be required to participate in all law enforcement uses of his technique. If found guilty, even as a double blind subject, he would have to suffer the normal punishment of any suspected terrorist. If he was willing to do this, then I might consider it as a valid technique. If not, all I can say is that I know a lot of other researchers who are willing to blow visible hydrocarbon doughnut symbols out of anal orifices in their search for glory.
