The Four Horsemen

In 2010 a study was conducted with adolescent chimpanzees.

It was a mixed sex group of equal numbers.

They were given painted rocks to see how they would respond to a new stimulus.

 The chimpanzees demonstrated behaviours which, for a long time, were believed to be human and developed through environmental factors. The females grouped together.

They placed their rocks in the centre of their group and rotated watching them. Weaker females were helped by the stronger and the rocks were collectively protected

In 2010 a study was conducted with adolescent chimpanzees.

It was a mixed sex group of equal numbers.

They were given painted rocks to see how they would respond to a new stimulus.

 The chimpanzees demonstrated behaviours which, for a long time, were believed to be human and developed through environmental factors. The females grouped together.

They placed their rocks in the centre of their group and rotated watching them. Weaker females were helped by the stronger and the rocks were collectively protected

by the group. The males attacked each other until one remained standing with all the rocks. Sound familiar?

 The study lead onto the social media craze of “controlling your chimp brain”.

It also opened a large debate; “Does the male and female brain function differently on a fundamental level?”.

Widely it is accepted that they do, the male chimp brain is solitary and aggressive whilst the female chimp brain is communal and caring.

But what does this have to do with mental health? In short, a lot.

The history of research into mental health and psychology is vast and, in places, ugly; the book by Jon Ronson

“The Psychopath Test” gives you brief insight into this ugliness. However, from the 1980’s onwards research and society had a large shift in perspective as mental health began to have the same standing as physical health.

There was a snag. When conducting mental health research, most subjects tested or questioned are voluntary. Most volunteers were female.

This trend continued for 30 years with the assumption that male and female brains work the same.

An assumption we seriously questioned not 3 paragraphs ago. An assumption which was questioned so much that it sparked the first dedicated male mental health research centre.

Male mental health is a hot topic in modern society. Why? Why isn’t ALL mental health a hot topic?

Surely the mental health of females is just as important as males? Yes, yes, it is. But here is the kicker for men reading this, women’s brains are fundamentally better.

 Is this Mr Cannon just taking another opportunity to blow the horn of Feminism? Probably, but you cannot argue with Science either.
