Liars' brains are different

Today I read an article in BBC News that gave our species some hope:

"Habitual liars' brains differ from those of honest people, a study says. A University of Southern California team studied 49 people and found those known to be pathological liars had up to 26% more white matter than others.

White matter transmits information and grey matter processes it. Having more white matter in the prefrontal cortex may aid lying, the researchers said."

Now that you know this important fact, make sure you use it whenever they catch you...
