The Face Never Lies
Friday, January 23, 2009
The new FOX show "Lie To Me" follows a psychologist who can detect a lie by watching a person's minute facial gestures and body movements. Sounds implausible, except that much of it is real. The show's main character is based on the life and work of Dr. Paul Ekman, who serves as the program's scientific adviser. Ekman explains what it's like to watch his life's work on TV.
