Updated September 16, 2016

Research by Daniel Antonius, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry and director of forensic psychiatry, shows fear is the primary psychological weapon underlying acts of terrorism and that it can eventually develop into a mental disorder.

“It is this fear, or the anticipation of future acts of terror, that can have serious effects on our behavior and minds,” he said.
