They found women rate emotional images as more emotionally stimulating than men do and are more likely to remember them.
It's MY DEMOCRAT party and I will CRY if TRUMPED
INCREASED BRAIN ACTIVITY
Using fMRI data from 696 test subjects, the researchers were also able to show that stronger appraisal of negative emotional image content by the female participants is linked to increased brain activity in motoric regions.
'This result would support the common belief that women are more emotionally expressive than men,' explained Dr Klara Spalek, lead author of the study.
The large-scale study by a research team at the University of Basel focused on determining the gender-dependent relationship between emotions, memory performance and brain activity.
'This would suggest that gender-dependent differences in emotional processing and memory are due to different mechanisms,' says study leader Dr Annette Milnik.
It is known that women often consider emotional events to be more emotionally stimulating than men do.
Earlier studies have shown that emotions influence our memory: the more emotional a situation is, the more likely we are to remember it.
This raises the question as to whether women often outperform men in memory tests because of the way they process emotions.
