Daily social interactions that are negative and competitive are associated prospectively with heightened proinflammatory cytokine activity.
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2012 Feb 7;109(6):1878-82. Epub 2012 Jan 23. Negative and competitive social interactions are related to heightened proinflammatory cytokine activity. Chiang JJ, Eisenberger NI, Seeman TE, Taylor SE. Source Department of Psychology, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA. Abstract Research has consistently documented that social relationships influence physical health, a link that may implicate systemic inflammation. We examined whether daily social interactions predict levels of proinflammatory cytokines IL-6 and the soluble receptor … Continue reading
Social pain–the painful feelings associated with social disconnection–rely on some of the same neurobiological substrates that underlie experiences of physical pain
Nat Rev Neurosci. 2012 May 3;13(6):421-34. doi: 10.1038/nrn3231. The pain of social disconnection: examining the shared neural underpinnings of physical and social pain. Eisenberger NI. Source University of California, Department of Psychology, 4444 Franz Hall, Los Angeles, California 90095, USA. firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract Experiences of social rejection, exclusion or loss are generally considered to be some of the most ‘painful’ experiences that we endure. Indeed, many of us go to great lengths to avoid situations that may engender these experiences (such as public speaking). Why is … Continue reading
