An excellent article:
Much is talked about that we reference on classes, including ‘muscle memory,’ breaking the freeze, operant conditioning, visualization and rehearsals.

I read that article before I came here today. While I cannot relate to it in the sense of MVT training, I did find it very pertinent to some of my experiences as an LEO working nights on the Rio Grande River…minus incoming indirect fire.
Definitely worth the time it takes to read and absorb.May 20, 2016 at 2:39 pm #27350RRSParticipant
Slightly off the topic but conflict centered, you will see this research and tactics derived from it surfacing in the future dealing with the political end of the current conflict.
Generally it deals with a hypothesis that the Left half of the polity is Limbic dominated and prone to panic, and up till now very fortunate to have gentle conservatives trying to calm them down with sweet reason and compassion.
But Shock and the F*** Awe are coming down the pike.

@RRS: I wouldn’t know, I’m not a conservative. I’m just an aspiring free man. Let’s keep it on topic, combat leadership, and away from politics.May 20, 2016 at 5:30 pm #27354wildbillParticipant
Excellent article on the different parts of the brain and how they function and how that will affect decision-making especially in relationship to combat leadership. While this is great information for a military combat leaders development it would apply equally well to a CUTT leader and the selection of that CUTT leader by the group, in fact the CUTT team should consider the information in this article when they weigh their selection of leadership.
With that being said, I think the same information is useful on a personal basis to keep you alive by teaching you how to make good decisions because you have to keep your head out of your weapon so you can evaluate the situation.
