Work published in PLoS ONE by Dr Caroline Watt and colleagues debunks NLP lie-detection claim
The results of three studies released today debunk claims made by Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) practitioners that eye-movements are reliable indicators of lying and truth-telling. The work, a result of collaboration between researchers from the Universities of Edinburgh, Hertfordshire, and British Columbia, includes investigations of eye-movements made during sanctioned lying and truth-telling, and during real-world filmed public appeals by relatives and close associates of suspected victims of crime.
