Friends 'Better Than Morphine'



"I am interested in endocrinologic chemicals called endorphins." Endorphins are part of our pain and joy cycle - they are the natural pain of our bodies and give us a sense of joy. "Previous studies have suggested that endorphins promote social bonding in both humans and animals. Socially, is a social relationship that creates a positive feeling when endorphin interacts with opioid receptors in the brain. This gives us the best chance we can get from seeing our friends.

'To test this theory, we are based on the fact that endorphins have a more powerful pain effect - more than morphine.'

The researchers used the painkiller as a way to evaluate the endorphin activity of the brain. If the theory is correct, people with large social networks will have higher tolerance to pain, and this is what their education is. Friends can also help the pain disappear!

Katerina commented: 'These results are also interesting because recent research suggests that endorphins may be damaged in psychological problems such as depression. This may be part of the reason that depressed people often suffer from discomfort and become withdrawn society. '

There are also two other observations. Both those who are bitter and those with high income tensions tend to have a smaller social network.

Katerina explains: 'It might be time-consuming - more time-consuming people to see their friends. However, there may be many interesting explanations - because physical and social activity promotes endorphin release, some may use exercise as an alternative to receiving their endorphin instead of society. Stress discovery may indicate that a large social network allows people to better manage stress or it may be the stress or reason that people have less time for social activities, reducing their network.

'Studies suggest that the quantity and quality of our social relationships affect our physical and mental health and may be our long-term determinants. Therefore, understanding why people have different social networking ranges and the relevant neurobiological mechanisms are important research topics. As a matter of fact, we have developed rapidly in an enormous social environment, but in this modern digital age, our social inequality may be one of the factors that has not lost interest in diminishing the health of our modern society.

How research has been carried out
Participants were asked to complete a two-way survey on the social network (approximately equal to those contacted at least once a week and once a month) and provide information about life and individuals. Then they performed a test involving squatting against the wall with a knee at 90 ° angle and back to the opposite (wall seat test). They were asked to take this position and to endure the discomforts possible. Even when allowing for differences in individual fitness, education finds that those who can tolerate this pain test for a long time are also likely to have a large social network.
