In narcoanalysis, the subject is administered with truth serusm or sodium penthotal which diminishes reasoning power without affecting memory. A subject in such a case blurts out facts without resorting to lies or cover-ups. The subject who is in a semi consious state of mind may also reveal things that are directly out of his imagination, so it is not exactly a fool proof method.

Narco test refers to the practice of administering barbiturates or certain other chemical substances, most often Pentothal Sodium, to lower a subjects inhibitions, in the hope that the subject will more freely share information and feelings. A person is able to lie by using his imagination. In the narco-analysis test, the subjects inhibitions are lowered by interfering with his nervous system at the molecular level. In this state, it becomes difficult, though not impossible for him to lie. In such sleep-like state, efforts are made to obtain probative truth about the crime. Experts inject a subject with hypnotics like Sodium Pentothal or Sodium Amytal, under the controlled circumstances of the laboratory. The dose is dependent on the persons sex, ag ...more

Apart from the method of how how narcoanalysis is carried out, we have also to understand the negative side of this test: NARCO analysis is a recent technical ploy (excuse me, I use the word ploy with a purpose) being increasingly deployed by crime investigating agencies to establish whether a suspect has really committed the offense. The process involves a type of lie detection supposed to be effective to establish whether the subject lies when questions are put to him. Though the evidence gathered through this mechanism (electronic devise) is not considered by Courts as valid, it weighs heavily in supporting the evidence. The whole problem in these techniques is that many, including the technologists and scientists, seldom recognize that human brain is a very very delicate and sensitive organ, that even the slightest indication from the words put to the subject during test, would create tangible nervous activity resulting in whatever result that has come out turning out to be utterly ...more
