What is polygraph test?
A polygraph is a lie detector test in which several physiological indices such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity is measured and recorded while a person is asked and answers a series of questions. The belief is that deceptive answers will produce physiological responses that can be differentiated from those associated with non- deceptive answers. The polygraph was invented in 1921 by John Augustus Larson, a medical student at the University of California, Berkeley and a police officer of the Berkeley Police Department in Berkeley, California. The test was listed as greatest inventions in 2003, described as an invention that had profound effect on human life for better or worse. Many members of the scientific community consider polygraphy to be a pseudoscience. Nonetheless, in some countries polygraphs are used as an interrogation tool with criminal suspects or candidates for sensitive public or private sector employment.
