The pulse fastens, the adrenal courses through the veins and the heart pounds, but in depressing conditions is our response restricted by our genes and does it matter due to differences in our genders? Australian researchers consider that the SRY gene which guides the development in the males might encourage violence and other traditionally male personality traits which result in the fight-or-fight response to stress. Research has proved that the body responses to depression by stimulating the adrenal glands that discharge particular catecholamine hormones into the bloodstream and activate the response of violent fight to fight.

Previously men and women have been under various selection influences which are imitated by the behavioral and biochemical differences amid the genders. This response is more prominent in men than women as the latter adopts a less violent tend and befriend the response. One researcher has shown that SRY is a gender determinant gene which guides the prenatal progress of the testes which in response discharge hormones which develops in a masculine body. The authors say that SRY influence might main organs in the male body to react to depression by means of discharge of catecholamine and flow of blood to organs as well as encouraging stress and augmented movement which motivate aggression in males.

In females estrogen and the stimulation of internal opiates, which their body applies in regulating pain, might avoid aggressive reactions. The part of SRY control of catecholamine even recommends the gene might have a part in male biased disease like the Parkinson’s disease. Recent evidences show that the SRY gene forces maleness by reacting straight on the brain and the peripheral tissues to control blood pressure and movement in males. This study assists in uncovering the hereditary basis to justify why men behave violent than females in stress.
