The American Civil Liberties Union has filed Freedom of Information Act requests to get details on the possible use of “brain scanning” technology during terrorist interrogations by the U.S. government.
In a press release, the group alleges that the most likely technology to be used ? functional magnetic resonance imaging ? produces real-time images of the subject’s brain during questioning, including images and sound.
The group goes on to say that two companies are already marketing their “lie detector” services to the federal government beginning this summer, despite the ACLU’s assertion that experts don’t believe the technology is reliable.
