A Probability Model of Accuracy in Deception Detection Experiments.
Park, Hee Sun; Levine, Timothy R.
Communication Monographs, v68 n2 p201-10 Jun 2001
Extends the recent work on the veracity effect in deception detection. Explains the probabilistic nature of a receiver's accuracy in detecting deception and analyzes a receiver's detection of deception in terms of set theory and conditional probability. Finds that accuracy is shown to be a function of the relevant conditional probability and the truth-lie base rate. (SG)
