Yawning is a scientific conundrum that has baffled scientists for decades. Whilst the origin and mechanism of yawning may be understood, its presence and frequency in a number of neurological disorders is not clearly understood. The Thompson Cortisol Hypothesis (2011) proposes a link between yawning and blood cortisol levels because of the known association between cortisol (and its elevation in levels) and other states such as fatigue, stress, and importantly, a number of neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and stroke. Investigation to support this hypothesis is underway.
