Women Might Need Friends More than Men, a New Study Claims
In their study, the scientists tested the stress level in male and female mice. The results of the study show the importance of a social network for females. These findings give the way for future research whether females befriend others as a coping mechanism during stressful situations.
Dr. Jaideep Bains, a senior author of the research, says: “Many species, including humans, use social interaction to reduce the effects of stress. In fact, the lack of a social network may itself be stressful.”
This conclusion can help create strategies to cope with stress that are sex-specific.
