Women have higher brain temperatures than men, research says
Cambridge: A study has revealed that women are warmer than men.
Researchers at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom have found that women’s brains are 0.4 degrees Celsius warmer than men’s, according to a foreign news agency.
The researchers said that this difference in brain temperature may be due to the specific days of women.
In a study published in the journal Brain, researchers selected 40 volunteers between the ages of 20 and 40. The study scanned the brains of these volunteers at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh at intervals of one day in the morning, afternoon and late evening.
Researchers who created the first four-dimensional picture of the temperature of a healthy human brain found that the average temperature of the human brain, which was previously thought to be 38.5 degrees Celsius, was now higher than that. More than 40 degrees Celsius was found with constant. The highest temperature observed was 40.9 degrees Celsius.
Having this temperature in another part of the body is generally considered a sign of fever, but researchers say it could be a sign of a healthy brain.
Scientists also observed an increase in temperature in participants over 20 years of age. This increase was seen in the inner part of the brain where the average increase was 0.6 degrees Celsius.
Researchers believe that the ability to keep the brain cool decreases with age.
