Potential of a zombie attack considered by guest speaker at USU

Aside from campus-wide stagings of zombie attacks, when the world faces a real pandemic infection that results in blood-thirsty dead people causing utter pandemonium, one Harvard professor has studied the ins and outs of zombiehood and brought his knowledge to USU.Dr. Steven Schlozman, psychiatrist and associate professor at Harvard Medical School, discussed how to survive a zombie apocalypse in a talk he gave in the TSC Ballroom Oct. 11.”My weapon of choice would be to keep my head, because when we start to react emotionally, we start to get ourselves in trouble,” Scholzman said.With Stanford, Brown and Harvard diplomas under his arm, Schlozman said he served as a panelist at the 2011 Comic Con in San Diego, at which he verbally sparred with other zombie experts, fans and even director George Romero of the zombie movie genre.In his speech “How to Survive (the Inevitable) Zombie Attack (in 8 Simple Steps)” Schlozman gave a checklist of skeletal essentials on how to survive the cultural obsession. He also spoke about the content of his book “The Zombie Autopsies,” and listed a medical breakdown of how to effectively recognize a progressing case of what he coined “ataxic neurodegenerative satiety deficiency syndrome.”
