Abstract

This study serves to examine the relationship between heightened training and lowered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder rates. Examines the process of brain damage through excess cortisol release, and procedures of training by which cortisol release can be regulated. Proposes increased training with emphasis on preparing service members for stress of combat, in order to help them learn to regulate stress responses, which are linked to cortisol release and eventual PTSD.
