Explanatory Notes Survey:

The evolutionary outcome of the fight-or-flight response is a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack, or threat to survival.  The fight-or-flight response (also called hyperarousal) was first described in 1932 by Walter Bradford Cannon an American physiologist, professor of  the Department of Physiology at Harvard Medical School. Given the above, it is reasonable to say that an attack that defeats the survival of many such as a mass murder or act of terrorism will cause an emotional state of hyperarousal in people that are the third person witnesses through the medium of visual and audio news reporting.
