What are microexpressions?

Microexpression - Split second facial expressions that last 1/25 of a second indicating that someone isn't telling the whole truth, or not the truth at all.  The best to see microexpressions at their best is to watch the hit FOX TV Series called "Lie To Me."  Tim Roth acting as Dr. Cal Lightman of The Lightman Group, solves crimes and mysteries based on whether people are telling the truth or not.  A link to FOX's sub-website will be posted in the "Links" page.


There are more than 3,000 different microexpressions.


A list of some commonly used expressions will be posted on the "Links" page
