MRI scans on pathological liars show abnormalities

Not sure where else this might fit so I'm putting it here.

Liars' brains make fibbing come naturally
The brains of pathological liars have structural abnormalities that could make fibbing come naturally. ...

He found that pathological liars have on average more white matter in their prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain that is active during lying, and less grey matter than people who are not serial fibbers. White matter enables quick, complex thinking while grey matter mediates inhibitions.
Is this a private fight, or can anyone join in?
