Brain fingerprinting: technique used to
determine scientifically what information is,
or is not stored in a particular brain
Not a measure of guilt or innocence
Measures the response to visual or audio
It uses p300 mermer.
• Invented By Dr. Lawrence A. Farwell in august
• It’s a patented technique of proven accuracy in
US government tests.
• It has a record of 100% Accuracy.
• A sequence of words, phrases, or pictures
is presented on a video monitor to the
subject, wearing a special headband
designed for detecting the brain wave
• Target : The target stimuli are made
relevant and noteworthy to all subjects.
• Irrelevant : These have no relation to the
situation under investigation.
• Probes : Probes are the stimuli that are
relevant to the situation under investigation.
Information is absent Information is present
• personal computer
• a data acquisition board
• a graphics card for driving two monitors from
• a four-channel EEG amplifier system
• software developed by the Brain Fingerprinting
Laboratories for data acquisition and analysis.
Criminal justice system
Security Testing ,etc.
• Fingerprints and DNA are available in only 1%
of crimes. The brain and the evidence recorded
in it are always there.
• No questions are asked and no answers are
given during Farwell Brain Fingerprinting.
• Brain Fingerprinting technology depends only on
brain information processing, it does not depend
on the emotional response of the subject.
