Lonely looking for someone to chill with

Online: Yesterday


Social isolation isn't known to be great for the body. Being alone a lot has been shown to increase everything from muscle tension to immune system issues — but it's feeling alone, rather than actually being isolated, that can have big impacts on psychological and physical health. So what happens to the brain when you're simply an introvert who likes chilling on your own? Interestingly enough, a whole host of neurological changes appear when you start to withdraw from social interactions to work on a project, get some rest or just take some time out.

Myelin is what makes up the protective "sheath" around your nerves, but you might know it as "white matter," as opposed to "gray matter," which comprises the nerve cells themselves. According to the study, a bit of social isolation dipped myelin levels, but didn't result in any different behavior, while spending a lot of time alone meant myelin levels dropped off quite a lot. Less myelin means your brain's aling ability changes.

A set of studies in have shown that after periods of social isolation, your brain starts to kick in and demand wih you go and talk to somebody.
