Applied cognitive psychophysiology, deception, detection of concealed memory and information, memory suppression
My research mainly concerns perfection of physiological, cognitive and behavioral means for detection of concealed information for field forensic use: such as in crimes, including prevention of terror acts and diagnosis of malingered head injury. We mostly rely on the P300 brain wave (event-related potential) as a sign of recognition. We also utilize the autobiographical version of the Implicit Association Test, and also, occasionally, fMRI imaging. We developed in 2008 a novel (“Complex Trial”) protocol which has proven resistant to most countermeasures. Recently, we have also studied a newly developed countermeasure known as “voluntary memory suppression” which thus far does not defeat our Complex Trial Protocol.
