GREEN BERETS' QUIET MINDSSpecial forces' brains work differently than regular soldiers' do, New Scientist says. The elite troops have neurological differences that make them more resilient to post-traumatic stress disorder.In a recent study, soldiers based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina were put through a week of simulated capture and interrogation. Afterwards, Green Berets were much less likely to suffer from stress.The special forces, in turns out, produced more of a molecule called neuropeptide Y in their blood. This molecule is generated by the body to help calm the brain in times of extreme stress.(via GeekPress)
