Stress was the subject of last night's OSU / Cascades "Science Pub"  at McMenamins.  OSU Assistant Professor of Psychology Sarina Saturn delivered the keynote speech: "This is Your Brain on Stress."  A recent study found people are more stressed now than 25 years ago.  Professor Saturn says she tries to give audience members tools to  manage their stress.  “But there are healthy ways to manage stress: exercise, fresh air, nature, spiritual.  I’ll be showing data on how love is the best way to conquer stress.  I also study the pro social hormone, which is released when feeling love.”  Recent findings also found that stress decreases as people age.  The Science Pub at McMenamin's Tuesday night was sold out.  We will have more on the Science Pub during this week's "Heart of the Arts."
