For the first time, researchers have visualized the effects of LSD on the human brain. In a series of experiments, scientists have gained a glimpse into how the psychedelic compound affects brain activity. The team administered LSD (Lysergic acid diethylamide) to 20 healthy volunteers in a specialist research centre and used various leading-edge and complementary brain scanning techniques to visualize how LSD alters the way the brain works.

Junger is a war journalist, whose new book tries to understand why there is such a high rate of PTSD in war veterans these days or this century. The article makes it out that his main conclusion is that they come out of a situation where there is intense camaraderie and support to a country which is very individualistic and materialistic, and they flounder. That's how I read it anyway.
