Sex, Lies, and Brain Scans

How fMRI reveals what really goes on in our minds

Barbara J. Sahakian and Julia Gottwald

  • Describes how fMRI allows us to see inside the living brain, giving us the ability to attempt to read minds, guess purchasing choices in advance, and check whether people are lying, or biased
  • Explains what recent neuroimaging studies have revealed
  • Considers the possibilities opening up for understanding the brain, motivation, thoughts, and behaviour
  • Looks at the ethical issues raised by the use of fMRI, such as uncovering racial bias, or false memories
  • Winner of the 2017 British Psychological Society Book Award for Popular Science
