top five reasons to watch lie to me: number five | the science

The science of Lie to Me is literally the coolest thing you’ll ever see. While at first glance it seems utterly ridiculous - why the hell would you need to be able to see if someone’s lying by staring at their eyebrows? - you quickly realize how badass it is to know exactly how a person is feeling by merely looking at them. Drooping eyelids, lips turned down - sadness. Nose wrinkled, lips curled back and teeth bared - disgust. Eyebrows together, lips narrow - anger. And each of these emotions only last for a fraction of a second, hence their name: micro-expressions.

The Lightman Group is built on the detection of micro-expressions in their relation to lies. They specialize in seeing what others don’t, and then finding out the answer to the ultimate question: Why are you lying?
