The Language of Lying

I’m a little hesitant to post this here, because I don’t want anyone thinking that I am saying that deception detection is part of the role of the forensic healthcare provider. In the context of caring for living victims of violence, it’s not. That being said, I found this new video from the TED-Ed folks on the language of lying really fascinating, and several people I read have posted it on their own sites (so perhaps you’ve already seen it). If not, watch it for what it is (interesting science, not a how-to for wannabe investigators) and enjoy!
