    When they're pathological liars:

    "A USC study has found the first proof of structural brain abnormalities in people who habitually lie, cheat and manipulate others.

    While previous research has shown that there is heightened activity in the prefrontal cortex – the area of the brain that enables most people to feel remorse or learn moral behavior – when normal people lie, this is the first study to provide evidence of structural differences in that area among pathological liars.

    The research – led by Yaling Yang and Adrian Raine, both of the USC College of Letters, Arts and Sciences – is published in the October issue of the British Journal of Psychiatry.

    The subjects were taken from a sample of 108 volunteers pulled from Los Angeles’ temporary employment pool. A series of psychological tests and interviews placed 12 in the category of people who had a history of repeated lying (11 men, one woman); 16 who exhibited signs of antisocial personality disorder but not pathological lying (15 men, one woman); and 21 who were normal controls (15 men, six women)."

    Liars' Brains Wired Differently

    Lying and anti-social personality go hand in hand.

    Something that was already obvious to anyone who has worked in mental health and has observed the left wing liars on this board.

    People lie regardless of their sexuality and political affliation.
    Hell, when my son was around 8 -9 years old, he would spew a lie in any given situation if it meant saving his ass. He's since realized he can no longer get away with it.

    But studies show that lesbians lie more than the general population, and that pathological liars have actual changes in their brains caused by lying.

    New data on lesbian, gay and bisexual mental health
    New findings overturn previous beliefs.

    By TORI DeANGELIS

    February 2002, Vol 33, No. 2

    Print version: page 46
    The results of several breakthrough studies are offering new insights on gay men, lesbians and bisexuals. Among the key findings:

    Several studies suggest that gay men, lesbians and bisexuals appear to have higher rates of some mental disorders compared with heterosexuals, although not to the level of a serious pathology. Discrimination may help fuel these higher rates.
    A study found lesbians reported equally strong levels of mental health as their heterosexual sisters and higher self-esteem.
    A new study of gay and lesbian youth finds that they are only slightly more likely than heterosexual youth to attempt suicide, refuting previous research that suggested much higher rates.
    Researchers say these studies demonstrate the need for better, more tailored psychological treatment for lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people.

    I do believe that pathological liars have actual changes in their brains but I don't give a rat's ass if lesbians lie more than the general public.
