Description

Cognitive appraisals of threat and challenge, identified and characterized by Blascovich and Mendes (2000), involve whether an individual feels as though he or she is able to overcome a task requiring significant effort. This can be understood as an elaboration of the fight-or-flight response, and as such, can be indicated by physiological responses. This experiment applies this cognitive appraisal paradigm to a deception task, in an attempt to improve on the polygraph test.
