Everyone needs an occasional break, though spending too much time alone can be unhealthy and there is growing evidence that the psychosocial effects of too much solitude can last a lifetime. But newly published research by a University at Buffalo psychologist suggests that not all forms of social withdrawal are detrimental.

These women also “saw” more sexual arousal when viewing images of men’s faces.
