Zap your brain and become a better liar

"We apply the current right here -
and you stop all that nasty truth telling!"

If you're being a little too honest, all you need is 13 minutes of transcranial direct current stimulation over the anterior prefrontal cortex via scalp electrodes. At least that's what researcher Ahmed Karim and his team discovered - they found that subjects improved their ability to lie - they lied more skillfully, more quickly, and were calmer when they lied.

Why does this work? It might be because this technique temporarily knocks out the conscience, which seems to reside in the anterior prefrontal cortex area of the brain.
