Oxytocin, Vasopressin & Pair-Bonding: Larry Young’s TEDx Talk

  1. The Army Field Manual for interrogations was in accrod with the Geneva Conventions. It was the enhanced interrogation techniques introduced by the CIA and contractors that contributed to the abuses. Even if it does not rise to the legal definition of torture, cruel and unusual treatment is still a war crime.

  2. Thanks for for leaving your filamy and coming to Horry County to give us one of the best classes I’ve taken in my career. I look foward to using the information I gained today. Again I thank YOU!!!!
