Interesting research just in time for Mothers Day!

In the lead up to Mother’s Day, Royal Mail has conducted a scientific experiment which shows mums respond more positively to greeting cards and letters than to social media messages. Mums recorded twice the amount of happiness towards letters and cards to social media messages, and three times more than email.

As part of the study, emotional activity was measured. The experiment involved volunteer mums being fitted with a cap and electrodes which measured changes in voltage caused by cognitive activity in the brain.

The electrical activity in the mums’ brains saw a greater positive emotional response to handwritten letters and greeting cards when compared to electronic messages such as social network messages and emails, The Implicit Association Test saw mums having to associate words representing either happiness or sadness with cards and letters and electronic messages.
