Polygraph Procedure Polygraph Procedure
What goes on in a polygraph "test?" What kinds of questions are asked in a polygraph examination? What is a "lifestyle" polygraph? How does the lie detector "work"? Just how accurate is the polygraph? Can truthful people fail? Can liars beat the polygraph? How can you protect yourself against a false positive outcome?
