"From a medical and scientific standpoint, it is not sufficient to measure well that which should not be measured in the first place."

Dr. Alan P. Zelicoff
Remarks at 1st public meeting

"...every examiner I asked at DoDPI, 'If you wanted someone to fail this test, could you have them do it, physiologically?' they said 'yes.'"

National Academy of Sciences
Polygraph Review

In January 2001, the National Academy of Sciences' National Research Council began project BCSS-I-00-01-A, an $860,000 "Study to Review the Scientific Evidence on the Polygraph." The final report, published in October 2002 and titled The Polygraph and Lie Detection, is now available on the NAS website. An executive summary (22 kb PDF) may be downloaded from AntiPolygraph.org.

The National Research Council made some documentation of its proceedings available on its web page for the project, which is no longer online, but which remains available via the Internet Archive's WayBack Machine. The audio files of the polygraph review panel's public hearings will be of special interest to researchers, and AntiPolygraph.org has made them available here along with additional information from the hearings to supplement that on the NAS web page.
