一些研究表明，与没有患有甲亢的人相比，某些大脑区域可能与患有亢进症的人有所不同。然而，正如研究人员James McGaugh告诉60分钟一样，这些大脑差异是否是导致亢进的原因并不总是很清楚：“我们有鸡/蛋问题。他们是否拥有这些较大的大脑区域，因为他们已经锻炼了很多？或者他们有美好的回忆……因为它们更大？“一项研究发现，患有亢进症的人可能会更倾向于沉浸在日常体验中，并且他们往往具有强烈的想象力。该研究的作者认为，这些趋势可能会使患有亢进症的人更加关注他们生活中的事件，并更多地重新审视这些经历 – 这两者都有助于记忆事件。心理学家还推测，亢进症可能与强迫症有关，并且已经表明患有亢进症的人可能会花更多的时间来反思他们生活中的事件。
Some studies have shown that certain areas of the brain may differ from those with hyperthyroidism compared to those without hyperthyroidism. However, as the researcher James McGaugh told 60 minutes, it is not always clear whether these brain differences are the cause of hyperthyroidism: “We have chicken/egg problems. Do they have these larger brain regions because they have exercised? A lot? Or do they have good memories…because they are bigger?” One study found that people with hyperthyroidism may be more inclined to immerse themselves in everyday experiences, and they often have strong imaginations force. The authors of the study believe that these trends may make people with hyperthyroidism pay more attention to the events in their lives and revisit these experiences more – both of which contribute to memory events. Psychologists also speculate that hyperthyroidism may be associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder and has shown that people with hyperthyroidism may spend more time rethinking events in their lives.
