  • 1. Synopsis On BRAIN FINGER PRINTING Submitted By: GARIMA SINGH(57/CSE/7th Sem) 0901322705 Department of Computer Science and Engineering Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology
  • 2. Abstract Brain fingerprinting is based on the theory that throughout a crime and other activities, the brain plans, records, and executes all of the actions. Such details, all concealed within the brain, can now be revealed through brain fingerprinting. Brain fingerprinting is a technique that is advocated as a way to identify a terrorist or other dangerous person or other psychological details by measuring the "brain-print" of that person when shown a particular body of writing or an image that was previously familiar i.e. this technique measures how brain waves respond to specific words or pictures flashed across a screen. Under the above topic we will discuss about the detailed analysis and working of this upcoming technology and how will it revolutionize various fields. Introduction Brain Fingerprinting was developed and patented in 1995 by Lawrence A.Farwell, Ph.D., chairman of the Brain Wave Institute in Fairfield, Iowa, and former Harvard University research associate. Brain fingerprinting is based on the theory that throughout a crime, the brain plans, records, and executes all of the criminal's actions. Brain fingerprinting is a controversial technique that is advocated as a way to identify a terrorist or other dangerous person by measuring the "brain print" of that person when shown a particular body of writing or an image that was previously familiar (such as of a training camp or manual). In the test, the subject is fitted with a patented headband equipped with sensors and shown a series of relevant words or pictures on a computer screen. When the brain recognizes something familiar, the brain elicits a wavelike response known as a MERMER (memory and encoding- related multifaceted electroencephalographic response) that begins between 300 and 800 milliseconds after the stimulus. The MERMER in turn contains the brain response known as a P300. The test can be done in as little as 10 minutes. While conventional lie detectors rely on fluctuations in respiration, perspiration and blood pressure, "brain fingerprinting" is based on a sub-set of brain waves that register as brief
  • 3. electrical patterns when a person recognizes familiar stimuli. Imagine, for instance, that a murder suspect maintains his innocence. While in custody, he is read certain words related to the crime in question. Brain fingerprinting is not only limited application field of criminal cases only but has stepped in various other fields such as advertisements, medicine, psychological and many other.
