Science in Criminology......Essential Tip 2

Could Brain Fingerprinting be the Future of Criminology?

The human brain is endowed with natural and highly complex psychological buffers in order to deal with all the life-events that confront it. Thus it stores such information in the easily accessible compartments / files of "the conscious" and "the pre-conscious", the remotely accessible compartment / recycle bin of "the unconscious" and in many instances erases the never to be accessible memory chips of unpleasantness, trauma and violence into "the ex-conscious" of the perpetrator and the victim.

Narcoanalysis and the lie-detecting polygraph tests have failed to be objective and are obsolescent on account of the fact that it's results could be easily manipulated by smart criminals.

Brain fingerprinting on account of it's objectivity in tapping "the conscious", "the pre-conscious" and "the unconscious" could have a very promising future in the discipline of criminology, yet, it's inability to tap "the ex-conscious" renders the technique non-foolproof and vulnerable as it could project a criminal as one who is innocent and vice-versa. False positive P300 ERP could also be a very frequent occurrence.

Thus human brain is extremely futuristic in it's natural design and it is both ironical and intriguing to understand that it lies and cheats itself. Global enthusiasts of brain finger printing should not ignore this wisdom.
