On June 15th, Dr. Andreas Hansen (Head Physician and SoCA trustee) will be giving an online lecture on ‘the physiology of combat’.
The lecture will explore what happens inside the mind and body during combat from a medical perspective and discuss some of the important internal factors that influence combat abilities in humans. These factors affect all humans, and by studying them we can gain especially detailed insights into conflicts of both past and present.
