A polygraph test records physiological responses of a subject through application of sensors to areas of their body whilst an examination is conducted, and the subject is asked questions regarding the issue or behaviour that needs to be clarified.
The sensors record responses such as heart rate (pulse), respiration (breathing rate) skin conductivity (which indicates sweat produced on the hand), blood pressure, movement, and temperature which is then conveyed to a software programme and converted into numerical or visual data such as a graph which measurements can be obtained from.
The bodily responses described above have been evidenced within psychology and the behavioural sciences to indicate stress or anxiety and exposure to threat which human beings experience when they act to deceive or lie.
A polygraph examiner will use specific methodology to design the question sets used within a lie detector test that comply with research and study into the principles and approaches found to provide the most accurate and reliable polygraph test results and will use specific language and order of questioning to promote this.
After the lie detector test the examiner can analyse the data achieved and conduct scoring techniques to determine the presence or lack of deception indicated by the recorded responses of the subject during questioning.
You may be feeling somewhat apprehensive or nervous about attending a lie detector test, or unsure of what to expect or if the experience will be uncomfortable or upsetting in any way.

A lie detector test is not painful and will not place you at any physical risk.
Lie detector tests are normally conducted within the home of the examinee as this provides a relaxed and familiar environment conducive to reliable results but other discreet venues can be arranged if required.

A proficient and experienced polygraph examiner will explain the whole process to you, take time to talk through the issue at the heart of the need for a test, and find out your views and feelings whilst providing a supportive and comfortable environment for you.
Prior to conducting the actual lie detector test, the examiner will gain your consent and undertake a pre-interview which will find out information about you as a person and the event behind the request for examination, as well as any important details such as physical or mental health difficulties, prescribed medication, or use of alcohol or illicit substances.
They will also talk you through the questions that will be used during the test and ensure that you understand these and can answer them to the best of your ability.
Lie detector tests include the main or “hot topic” questions about the specific incident the examination is being conducted to address as well as other more generic control questions about similar matters and also irrelevant questions to restore emotional and physiological regulation.
Once you are comfortable and ready to proceed the examiner will attach the sensors to your body which are placed on your hand, arm, and torso can be applied over a light piece of clothing such as a t-shirt.
The test will then commence and after this the examiner will either be able to provide results immediately if you are an individual who gives clear and obvious responses or may need to analyse the data more fully before advising of outcome; this is not an indication of deception, it is just due to every individual being different and the variations in personal bodily response.
Following your lie detector test you will receive a full written report providing the results of your examination which will be emailed to you and for you to keep and use however you choose.
