Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study Revealing Why Men Struggle to Figure Out Women

Long Beach, CA;Chicago, IL;Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013 -- Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports on a new study showing that men have a harder time recognizing women’s emotions, at least when it comes to their eyes

As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/brain-function/new-study-reveals-why-men-struggle-to-figure-out-women), for years, women have been saying that men are just clueless when it comes to their emotions and now research is showing that there may be some truth to this statement. In the study, researchers examined men between the ages of 21 and 52. The men were placed in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner. While they were in the scanner they asked to look at images of 36 pairs of eyes, half being the eyes of women and half being the eyes of men. From these images, the participants were asked to guess whether the eyes were those of a man or of a woman and were also asked to determine what emotion the image was expressing. All of the participants underwent fMRI scans of their brains during their decision making process so the researchers were able to see what areas of the brain were activated during this process.

The results showed that the participants were almost equally successful at guessing the gender of the male and female eyes. However, participants performed much worse when guessing the emotions being expressed by the female eyes compared to the male eyes. Additionally, the participants took a longer amount of time to make their decision on the emotion being expressed in the eyes of the women. The researchers therefore determined that men are able to read other’s men eyes faster and more accurately than they can read women’s eyes.

As Bel Marra Health reports, researchers were able to identify that the discrepancy in reading the emotions has to do with the activation levels of different areas of the brain. When men were reading the eyes of other men there was significantly more activity in the right hippocampus and the anterior cingulate cortex of the brain compared to when they were reading the women’s eyes. These two areas of the brain are responsible for emotional memories. It may be that men are more accurate at reading other men’s eyes because they are able to draw upon their own past emotional experiences. As researchers said, from an evolutionary standpoint, men would have had to read the eyes of other men better since they were often involved in dangerous activities such as fighting and hunting. It would have thus been beneficial from a survival standpoint to predict the actions of other men based on their eyes and facial expressions.

Experts at Bel Marra Health urge that if women want to live a happier, less complicated life, it might be easier to vocally express emotions to the men in their lives rather than letting them guess what they’re feeling from their non-verbal cues.
