SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A study has found young women are better able to cope with stress than young men, leading researchers to suggest there may be such a thing as a female "anti-stress" hormone.
German researchers said Tuesday they found differences in the way men and women fared on a memory test given to a small group of college students.
Men with higher levels of cortisol, a hormone produced during stress, recalled fewer words than males with lower levels. No such correlation was found in women.
