Women’s brains are hotter than men’s. Not in terms of anger, but in terms of temperature. The brain temperature of women is up to half a degree warmer than that of men. Especially during the day, the temperature of the brain of women goes up to about 40.9 ° C.
Research from Cambridge’s MRC Laboratory for Molecular Biology revealed that while the rest of the body’s temperature is up to 37 °C, the average brain temperature is 38.5 °C. However, the temperature of the interior of the brain can be as hot as 40 °C.
Menstruation is also the reason behind the rise in temperature
Research has found that it may be that due to the menstrual cycle, the temperature of the brain of women becomes higher. Dr. John O’Neill, who was involved in the research, said, ‘The most surprising thing in the research was that sometimes the temperature of the human brain increases very much. If the temperature of the body increases so much, then it comes in the category of fever. Such high temperature has been measured in only those people who have been victims of head injury.
Brain temperature also increases with age
Brain temperature also increases with increasing age. Researchers say that with increasing age, the ability of the brain to cool-down starts decreasing. However, research needs to be done on whether this happens due to some mental disorder or not.
