Can Brain Waives Reveal if You’re Guilty of Drunk Driving in Michigan?

Sep 1st, 2016 DUI Enforcement

The AP Forensic Science Laboratory, located in India, has begun experimenting with “brain wave finger prints” that may someday be able to determine if you’ve committed a crime, including drunk driving.

According to the Deccan Chronical:

In brainwave fingerprinting a patented headgear will be put on the head with sensors to read brainwaves.  A suspect will be shown some probes like visuals of crime scenes, bombs, weapons and other related issues.

Immediately after seeing them the experimental knowledge in the brain’s hypothalamus will recognize it if he has knowledge and it will be read by the equipment.

The basic theory of this is that the unconscious brain continues to remember events in vivid detail long after the event recorded, and perhaps longer than the conscious brain has forgotten. The hypothalamus controls body temperature, hunger, important aspects of parenting and attachment behaviors, thirst,[1] fatigue, sleep, and circadian rhythms.

Generally speaking, the hypothalamus is responsible for the four f”s, in other words, the survival drives.  The hippocampus on the other hand is related to memory. The amygdale , along with the hypocampus, is part of the brain’s limbic system. The limbic structures do most of the brain’s learning and remembering. The amygdale is the sentinel for emotional matters and records our emotional reactions to situations and events.

The hippocampus, on the other hand, registers and makes sense of perceptual patterns and provides a key memory of context, which is vital for emotional meaning. It enables you to remember a face as your uncle’s. It is the amygdale, however, that adds the emotional reaction you have to your uncle.

With this new research and technology it might someday be possible to determine a person’s guilt or innocence based only on a simple, non-invasive brain scan.  The day may be coming sooner than you think!
