Inidia is now using EEGs to determine the guilt or innocence of a defendant in court.

This latest Indian attempt at getting past criminals’ defenses begins with an electroencephalogram, or EEG, in which electrodes are placed on the head to measure electrical waves. The suspect sits in silence, eyes shut. An investigator reads aloud details of the crime — as prosecutors see it — and the resulting brain images are processed using software built in Bangalore.

The software tries to detect whether, when the crime’s details are recited, the brain lights up in specific regions — the areas that, according to the technology’s inventors, show measurable changes when experiences are relived, their smells and sounds summoned back to consciousness. The inventors of the technology claim the system can distinguish between people’s memories of events they witnessed and between deeds they committed.

seriously? they must be in a hurry to clear up the backlog of cases. even the polygraph which has around for some time has caused much angst when brought up in courts.

Indians? In a rush!? Why wasn't I informed about this earlier? The government hasn't even hung the fanatic who was involved in the attempted parliament bombing yet. 8)

I think this may be a one-off though, I believe even statements made under narco-analysis (which is carried out with increasing regularity these days) aren't admissible as binding evidence. It has excellent entertainment value when the interrogation clips are aired though, especially in 2008060254060501.jpg this guys's case. Big gravitationally-challenged dude slurring away on a bed with a small chirpy woman running around slapping him... "Tell me, Telgi! *slap* Tell me!"
