Washington: Brains of anxious girls work much harder than those of boys, Michigan State University scientists have found.The discovery could help in the identification and treatment of anxiety disorders.The finding stems from an experiment in which college students performed a relatively simple task while their brain activity was measured by an electrode cap.Only girls, who identified themselves as particularly anxious or big worriers, recorded high brain activity when they made mistakes during the task.Jason Moser, lead investigator on the project, said the findings may ultimately help mental health professionals determine which girls may be prone to anxiety problems such as obsessive compulsive disorder or generalized anxiety disorder.“This may help predict the development of anxiety issues later in life for girls. It’s one more piece of the puzzle for us to figure out why women in general have more anxiety disorders,” said Moser, assistant professor of psychology.
