Maureen O’Sullivan: Lies and The Truth Wizards (6/29/09)
Lies and The Truth Wizards
Maureen O’Sullivan, Ph.D.
O’Sullivan has devoted several years to the study of lies and liars. Of the over 13,000 people she has tested for the ability to detect deception, she found just 31, who she refers to as “Wizards.” O’Sullivan will discuss her work studying these Wizards and how they use microexpressions – facial changes that last less than a second – to catch liars in the act.
