In this episode of the MWI Podcast, MWI’s Maj. Jake Miraldi talks to Dr. Charles Morgan. Dr. Morgan is a forensic psychologist whose work at Yale University, at the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and with various military and government organizations has helped us better understand the nature of stress and psychological responses to it on the battlefield.

From a neurobiological perspective, what drives PTSD? Is there something that makes certain people more or less susceptible? What happens, inside our bodies and in our brains, that impacts the way we perform in combat? Dr. Morgan engages with these and other questions in this tremendously interesting conversation.
