Dr. Larry Farwell is a Harvard
graduate and former Harvard research
associate. He earned his PhD in
biological psychology from the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1992.
Farwell is the inventor of Brain
Fingerprinting, a scientific method to bring
out the truth and identify perpetrators of
crimes and clear the innocent with extremely
high accuracy through measuring electrical
brain signals. Brain Fingerprinting has
been used successfully to help to bring a
serial killer to justice and to exonerate a
man falsely convicted and imprisoned for 23
years for murder. Brain Fingerprinting
has been tested in the laboratory and in over
100 real-life cases, and has been accurate in
every case so far. It has been published
in the leading scientific journals, patented,
and ruled admissible in court. Dr. Farwell's
Brain Fingerprinting technique achieved over
99% accuracy in research at the FBI, the CIA,
and the US Navy.
Farwell also conducted pioneering research in
the field of brain-computer interfaces.
He invented the first EEG-based brain-computer
interface, a device that allows an individual
to communicate directly from the brain to a
computer and speech synthesizer using
electrical brain activity.
Farwell has invented and developed new
applications of brainwaves in several fields.
He pioneered the use of brainwaves to evaluate
the effectiveness of training and advertising
programs scientifically and developed medical
technology that may be applied for the early
detection of Alzheimer’s and other cognitively
conducted and published pioneering research
into the role of consciousness in human life
and the universe. In collaboration with
his late father, the renowned physicist Dr.
George Farwell, he scientifically demonstrated
in the laboratory that humans can
significantly affect the physical world from
the macroscopic level to the level of
subatomic particles through consciousness
alone – without physical intervention.
His book How Consciousness Commands
Matter: The New Scientific Revolution and
the Evidence that Anything Is Possible
explains the commanding role of consciousness
in human life and the universe in terms of
relativity and quantum physics, modern
neuroscience, and the Farwells' own research.
addition to his pioneering work in
neuroscience, brainwaves, and consciousness,
Dr. Farwell conducts
seminars on optimizing brain function
for success in life,
has a patent-pending invention for developing
renewable energy, and has served as clinical
director of an in-patient mental institution.
Farwell is a black belt in kungfu, an
accomplished swing dance performer, a
Transcendental Meditation teacher, and an
advocate of a naturally healthy lifestyle and
