Stress and Sudden Unexplained Death

Sudden unexplained death (with no underlying cause seen at autopsy) accounts for a significant number of deaths, often occurring in stressful situations.  The patterning of social pressures which might account for this are poorly understood, although the manner in which the nervous system may engage with fear to produce such a result has long been understood.  Learn about the social stressors that may cause this phenomenon as Dr. Stephenson draws on case histories from his work, particularly among refugees, to help explain the patterning of social pressures and death.
