Magnets On Your Brain May Keep You From Lying

Magnets on the brain may keep you from lying? What? Where are the magnets that keep people from getting grants for BS studies like this? roll eyes (sarcastic)

A new study shows that strategically-placed magnetic stimulation could potentially prevent your brain from being dishonest.

By stimulating these areas, the scientists were able to promote either an honest answer or a lie.
