New technology exposes ‘liars’ through telltale activation of facial muscles

  • Researchers at Tel Aviv University caught ‘liars’ at an unprecedented accuracy of 73% by measuring the movements of facial muscles.
  • The new technology can serve as a basis for the development of cameras and software able to detect deception in many real-life scenarios.

Newswise — Researchers at Tel Aviv University detected 73% of the lies told by trial participants based on the contraction of their facial muscles – achieving a higher rate of detection than any known method. The study identified two different groups of ‘liars’: those who activate their cheek muscles when they lie, and those who activate their eyebrows. According to the researchers, the technology has great potential for detecting deception in real-life contexts, such as security and crime.

The study was conducted by a team of experts from Tel Aviv University headed by Prof. Yael Hanein of the Center of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and School of Electrical Engineering, Iby and Aladar…
