In the Indian Tribune’s article relating the different ways each gender reacts to stress, they speak about new evidence that has showed that the male and female brain are wired differently and we have different ways of transmitting the heightened blood pressure and heart rate. In addition to this, scientists also found that certain parts of each gender’s brain are used differently in responding to stress and they also control very different factors.

Key Takeaways:

  • Offering new evidence to show that male and female brains are wired differently, new research has found that a brain region involved with stress and keeping heart rate and blood pressure high work differently in men and women.
  • The researchers found that men and women had opposite responses in the right front of the insular cortex, a part of the brain integral to the experience of emotions, blood pressure control and self-awareness.
  • “This is such a critical brain area and we hadn’t expected to find such strong differences between men and women’s brains,” said the study’s lead author Paul Macey from University of California, Los Angeles.
