What is a Polygraph Instrument and How Does it Work?

Polygraph instrument

A polygraph is a biofeedback instrument capable of registering psycho-physiological activity. It monitors changes caused by the autonomic nervous system that alters vital human organs.

The polygraph is capable of measuring, registering those reactions through different sensors like for example:

  • Pneumographs (Respiration)
  • Electro dermal sensor (Electro dermal activity)
  • Sphygmomanometer (Cardiovascular activity)

There might be other sensors in a polygraph that contribute to obtain a better correlation ratio among sensors like for example Plethysmograph (Cardiovascular activity).

So the polygraph is capable of measuring emotional responses to stimuli, that later can be interpreted by a professional polygraph examiner.
