Sample text

Because the brain per se recognizes the cue similar to a knee-jerk reaction, the subject’s mind is powerless to control it. New Tools from Neuroscience 35 THE SCIENCE OF MERMER Electrical brain wave patterns are detected (noninvasively) through powerful headband sensors. A specific brainwave response called MERMER (memory- and encoding-related multifaceted EEG response) is elicited if—and only if—the brain recognizes noteworthy information objectified by the P3 wave. Therefore, when details of a crime scene are presented to a subject that only he or she would recognize, a resulting MERMER is emitted in a P3 pattern.

For subjects lacking this knowledge, probes are indistinguishable from irrelevants with no MERBER elicited. In regard to terrorism, for example, affiliation to a group of secret conspirators would indicate insider (guilty) knowledge and would activate a MERMER, exposing a ring of terrorism. No Place to Hide The principal technology behind brain fingerprinting is that images of a crime cannot be concealed within cortices of a guilty brain; hence, guilty memories have no place to hide. Evidence stored in the brain will match evidence extracted at crime scenes by registering the P3 wave.

Also, what is the role of brain fingerprinting? • What happens when evidence ends up in forensic labs? What needs to be known by CSIs who gather evidence in the field? • Must criminal justice–trained students become academically prepared to know as much as possible about criminal mind? Would they “read” crime scenes differently? • Do antisocial criminals differ from cold-blooded psychopaths in personality, habits, and patterns? Should investigators know this? THE NEW INVESTIGATIVE TOOL KIT Forensic science academic training is most effective when it reflects forensic investigative kinship.
