Researchers say technology can show when and how a lie is created inside the brain. The "San Francisco Chronicle" quotes Professor Henry Greely.

"The worst thing to come of all this would be widespread inaccurate lie-detector testing -- and that's a very, very real fear," said Hank Greely, law professor at Stanford University. "The wild card is the intelligence community, which everyone believes is actively pursuing research in this area. ... This is a debate that has got to be conducted in the open."
