Abstract
The field of neurofunctional imaging has evolved over the past two decades. What started out as a means to confirm information derived from brain damage subjects has emerged as a tool for many applications. Of particular interest to the Defence sector is the field of forensic neuroimaging. The overall goal of forensic imaging is to unravel the biological basis of violence and psychopathy but neuroimaging techniques are also being investigated as tools for lie detection and may someday provide personality assessment. The neuroimaging techniques discussed in this context include Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Electroencephalography (EEG), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Optical Tomography (OT), Molecular Imaging (MI) as well as nonmedical imaging techniques. Their current status, limitations and future developments are addressed in detail.
