This presentation deals with the examination of a female witness and possible suspect involved in a double murder. A polygraph apparatus was attached to the subject during a hypnotic regression. An ideomotor response signal equivalent to a polygraph type response was also utilized. The findings were significant psychodynamically and may explain why reliability of such procedures is deemed questionable.
