Guest Miriam Posted June 29, 2001 Report Share Posted June 29, 2001 There's been a study done by the Roads research centre in the UK about why their are more accidents in the summer. It turns out that heat is directly linked to levels of serotonin. There are also more road rage attacks. All of which suggests to me that cortisol gets raised, which in turn affects serotonin. Cortisol getting raised in hot weather kind of makes sense - after all it's an anti-inflammatory, and what does heat do, if not "inflame" us.
