≪Organizer Abstract≫
The concealed information test (CIT) has been used in criminal investigations for detecting whether a suspect recognizes a crime-related item that cannot be identified by innocent persons. Although it is sometimes wrongly portrayed as a lie detection test, the essence of the CIT is to extract information that is not expressed verbally by using physiological and/or behavioral measures. The framework of the CIT can be used for many fields in addition to criminal investigations. In this symposium, the possible applications of the CIT will be discussed. First, the current use of the CIT in criminal investigations will be introduced. Then, the connections between the CIT and other fields trying to obtain information nonverbally, such as decision making, the brain-computer interface, and consumer neuroscience, will be discussed. The idea of the CIT will be put forward to be a more standard tool for obtaining mental information in the field of psychology.
