If you answer “no”, I am sorry, but I must disagree with you. Granted, these are trained police officers, and as such, they are going to react differently from most people. After all, they run toward the sound of gunfire, where most rational humans would run away." I have my doubts that all of the symptoms were directly related to Adrenaline. Bearing in mind that Dr. Artwohl obtained her information from police officers who had been involved in incidents which involved deadly force, I suspect that the diminished hearing might be due to the sound of a gun being fired nearby, and the tunnel vision possibly caused by muzzle flash in relative darkness. at: http://stresscourse.tripod.com/id11.html I found a claim that "sharpened hearing" is a feature of increased Adrenaline flow. Many of the other features have a lot in common with what Jenny Randles dubbed "The Oz factor" in relation to UFO or other paranormal reports. I think there is a strong argument to be made that these features are simply caused by fear or excitement generating a surge in Adrenaline. I have little doubt that these perfectly natural and involuntary responses influence many witnesses' accounts of what they saw in UFO reports. Cheers, Joe Listen to 'Strange Days...
