Will the Brain Ever Take the Stand? Canadian Law and the Admissibility of Neurotechnology Lie Detection Evidence

Jocelyn Downie

Abstract


This article is organized into four sections. The first section provides arguments to support the claim that an encounter between Canadian courts and Neurotechnology Lie Detection Evidence (NTLD) appears imminent; to this end, examples of increasing awareness of NTLD are discussed along with evidence of the introduction of related neurotechnologies in Canadian and U.S. courts.
