Difference in blink rate between men and women, and the effects of hormone levels

1 May 1992


There is a documented difference m blink rates between men and women. In this project, blink rates of both men and women were recorded in a non-visually stimulating environment. We found that men and women did in fact blink at different rates, and, upon further investigation, we found that blink rates of women varied significantly with the use of birth control pills. This paper examines this relationship between blinking and its possible link to hormone levels.
