 How Bad News Hijacks Your
 이** (jean)



With the conflict between Iran and America plus people talking about 

World War 3 we wanted to investigate why war is addictive. 



If you're like me you woke up on Jan 1st 2020 like hashtag new year new me

babe made yourself a smoothie started to meditate and then BAM we're at 

World War 3 memes started we kept refreshing Twitter we watched the news

obsessively and honestly I felt weirdly fascinated by the concept of war a 

variety of psychological studies have found that soldiers who returned from 

war actually end up missing it we all clamor to the cinema to watch movies 

about war and it turns out there is a reason why it has to do with our shared

history and your body archeologists believe that we were less violent as 

hunter-gatherers because we were more nomadic and we had less 

possessions essentially we just had less to fight over now I stay put in my

home I have things like my phone which I'm literally in love with and if anyone

does touch her though she'll feel bad laughs as humans when we started 

to stay put create agriculture build walls and borders and our populations 

grew that's when the concept of a large-scale war actually began and our

physiological response to it created an innate fascination your body is 

controlled by the brain and nervous system which is acted on by hormones

hormones are chemical messengers released from glands in your body that

influence the nervous system to regulate your behavior and physiology

if you are experiencing armed conflict firsthand playing call of duty or even

just reading about an impending war your brain will initiate a stress response 

the hypothalamus will release corticotropin-releasing hormone which acts 

on the pituitary gland of the brain to release adrenaline tropic hormone

into your bloodstream at this point the ACTH is pumping through your

body where it ends up passing through these little adorable adrenal glands

that chill on the top of your kidneys these glands use the ACTH signal

to now release adrenaline and noradrenaline into your blood which act 

on receptors throughout your body your heart rate increases your breath

quickens blood vessels constrict and you experience a feeling that is 

unsettling and thrilling known as the fight-or-flight response designed over

years of human evolution to protect you from danger your physical strength 

is temporarily increased your body has a decreased ability to feel pain and

other hormones like cortisol and dopamine are released which make your 

attention hyper focused the stress response is a natural high a natural 

biological process where you become focused hyper present and amped

to fight the neuroscientist Jim Foss explains that by activating your arousal 

and attention systems stressors can also wake up the neural circuitry 

underlying wanting and craving just like drugs do the stress

created by playing Call of Duty or watching a war movie is a really clever way to

target this system and the Hollywood Machine does a good job at creating a

lot of war movies that feed into this biological urge you get to leave the theater

and go home and return to home yo stasis because you're safe and sound 

which is one theory why civilians make it a rush from these movies because

for the most part we'll never have to face war as for the soldiers who have 

returned from war and claim that they miss it the studies show that they have 

become accustomed to these higher levels of stress and therefore they feel

that it's necessary to feel that stress all the time their brains will be wanting to

seek out these feel-good hormones and this leads them to think that they miss

the stress of war although acute stress may lead to a natural high chronic stress

has extremely negative effects on your body especially due to the hormone 

cortisol which over time decreases your immune function causes impaired 

digestion increased nervousness susceptibility to infection fear and desensitization 

if stressors are too strong and too persistent and individuals who are biologically 

vulnerable it can lead to disease living life is to be an impressionist dance with 

stress a biological response that the concept of war hijacks if people don't 

understand that the body can actually crave acute stress then we may end up 

treating war like a thrilling game and if that's the case with our world leaders then

we may all be in danger which is ironic because we evolved the fight-or-flight 

response to keep us safe from immediate danger but if we don't understand it

properly it may be the exact biological response that leads to another sad 

devastating war during these precarious times it does feel scary so you can

share this video with people so they can understand more about what's happening

and their thanks for watching and we will see you next week for a new science video 



1.Explain what Hijacks are.

2..Discuss how bad news affect our brain.

3.What comes to mind when you hear the word war?
