Scientists in the framework of the study found how the change in weather affects the human brain. The authors of the work were employees of the Olin Center for Neuropsychiatry in the USA.

The weather noticeably affects the well-being of meteorological citizens. In winter, there is an exacerbation of migraines, arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. In addition, such individuals do not cope with surges in atmospheric pressure in the best way. As part of the study, scientists compared the results of over 3,000 MRI examinations. As a result, it was possible to record a slight, but noticeable effect of weather on the human brain.
Typically, on a rainy day or in cold weather, the cerebellum is larger than usual, while the rest of the major organ of the central nervous system shrinks. In summer, the opposite process takes place. It was generally accepted that such changes are associated not with atmospheric pressure, but with the balance of fluid in the body. Through further research, scientists hope to understand how weather dependence develops.
