"Understanding memory performance under different operational conditions is critical in many occupational settings. To examine the effect of physical exertion on memory for a witnessed event, we placed two groups of law-enforcement officers in a live, occupationally relevant scenario. One group had previously completed a high-intensity physical-assault exercise, and the other had not. Participants who completed the assault exercise showed impaired recall and recognition performance compared with the control group. Specifically, they provided significantly less accurate information concerning target critical and incidental target individuals encountered during the scenario, recalled less briefing information, and provided fewer briefing updates than control participants did. Exertion was also associated with reduced accuracy in identifying the critical target from a lineup. These results support arousal-based competition accounts proposing differential allocation of resources under physiological arousal. These novel findings relating to eyewitness memory performance have important implications for victims; ordinary citizens who become witnesses; and witnesses in policing, military, and related operational contexts."


This article is probably the best. After a shooting:

Memory loss for part of the event 52%
Menory loss for part of your actions 46%


Here is my suggestion to the "experts" on this forum, who believe their opinions about how the mind and body work together, during a serious event, a critical incident (taking of a life would qualify). I suggest you read, study, and truly understand what it is you are talking about, BEFORE you spout off your ignorant positions.

Forcescience Research is the PREMIER center for studying the mind, body, and how it reacts to a critical incident. Dr Bill Lewinski is a friend of mind and his testimony is used WORLDWIDE to exonerate police officers and military; and too put them in jail.

A civilian, under stress, shooting someone, would not exhibit ANY different psychological or physiological problems as an officer or military. A human being, is a human being and their reactions to stress are basically the same.
