Using ordinary playing cards, Langleben et al. (2002) gave each participant a 5 of clubs prior to scanning. Then, during a brain fMRI scan, participants were shown the 5 of clubs, 2 of hearts, and other cards one at a time and asked whether or not they were holding each one. Because they were told to deny holding all cards, their responses to the 5 of clubs were decep- 17 Kozel (pilot) Kozel (replication) Kozel (exp. 1) Kozel (exp. 2) Langelben Langleben Phan Lee d Lee (sample 1) d Lee (sample 2) d Lee (sample 3) Abe Ganis Nunez Spence Mohamed 2004 2004 2005 2005 2002 2005 2004 2002 2005 2005 2005 2006 2003 2005 2001 2006 GKT GKT GKT GKT GKT GKT GKT Malinger Malinger Malinger Malinger Other Other Other Other Other a Procedure 8 (8–0) 10 (NA) 30 (17–13) 31 (12–19) 18 (11–7) 26 (26–0) 14 (7–7) 5 (5–0) 8 (8–0) 15 (7–8) 6 (NA) 14 (14–0) 10 (3–7) 20 (10–10) 10 (10–0) 11 (6–5) No.

Like Spence et al. (2001), these investigators presented each question twice, once with instructions to lie and once with instructions to tell the truth, while subjects were scanned with brain fMRI. In a procedurally complicated study, Ganis, Kosslyn, Stose, Thompson, and Yurgelun-Todd (2003) obtained detailed information about two personal experiences from each subject, and constructed alternative, fictional details for one of their experiences. Then, while subjects underwent a brain fMRI scan, they answered a series of questions about both the veridical and fictional experiences.
