It has been known since long that eye moments can very well reveal whether a person is lying or not. Experts have believed since decades that while saying something, if a person is looking at the left then, they are true, while in case they are looking up at right side, then they are lying.
However, findings in a recent research have proposed that there is no relation between eye moments and lying. During the research, Scientists made a movie based on eye movements of volunteers, who were either lying or telling the truth. The clip was then showcased to a second group of volunteers, who were asked to acknowledge the people who were lying by observing their eye moments.
Another part of the study included, watching videos of sophisticated and eye-catching press conferences, in which people asked out for help to find their lost relatives or confessed of being a victim of crime.
The volunteers failed to acknowledge as to who were the ones who were telling a lie by just observing their eye moments.
The study's co-author Dr Caroline Watt, of the University of Edinburgh, said: “Our research provides no support for the old myth and so suggests that it is time to abandon this approach to detecting deceit”.
