The purpose of the study was to learn the opinions of polygraph examiners concerning the role and applicability of scientific research in detection of deception conducted in Universities or other scientific centres. The questionnare was distributed among participants of the 56th Annual Seminar of the American Polygraph Association (Orlando Fl. 2022). The 55 copies of the questionnare were hande out, 48 completed sheets were returned. As it could been expected, polygraph examiners are generally not interested in of detection of deception other than the ones they currently using in their practice. The new methods of detection of deception, as for example exploiting the neurophysiological level (EEG, fMRI) or methods remotely observable and registrable indicators other than those that have as yet been used in polygraph examination generally was not interested for him.
