Scientists point out that stress infection with constant contact with the source in the case of the human brain can lead to much more severe consequences.

scientists at the Hotchkiss Brain Institute at the University of Calgary have determined that depression and stress that can literally get infected affect the brain’s biochemistry, depressing its activity and destroying the structure of the organ. Experiments on rodents demonstrated that an increased level of the stress hormone in one of the individuals provoked a change in brain activity in the other.

Also, scientists drew attention to the fact that in addition to changes in brain activity after “infection” with stress, reformatting and disturbances in the work of neurons occur. “Stress infection” and the suppression of the nervous system, according to researchers, can spread to two or more rodents – it is assumed that a similar mechanism for the spread of stress through social interaction is in humans.
