Sample text

In this paper, we offer an overview of the popular beliefs and myths seen within Arabic, Western and Indian Copyright © 2010 S. Karger AG, Basel cultures. Since antiquity, yawning has held as little interest for philosophers, psychologists and physiologists as it has for teachers, moralists and physicians. And yet, few things are as common as yawning. Everyone yawns 5–10 times a day. Yawning is a recognized behavior in almost all vertebrates, from birds to humans; one which starts in the womb and continues until death.

In addition to mentioning involuntary parakinesis in the paralyzed arm of a hemiplegic, he reported the unusual observation of D. Furtado, in which passive movement in the paralyzed arm of a polio patient triggered yawning, which has never been reported since [86]. In 1962, A. Montagu wrote an article in the JAMA that has since been frequently quoted. He proposed that yawning stimulated vigilance, while attributing lowered vigilance to insufficient brain oxygenation [87]. J. Boudouresque attempted to summarize knowledge on yawning for the Encyclopédie Médico-Chirurgicale in 1965 [88].

Although yawning often procures a sense of well-being for the yawner, attempting to mask this behavior is common practice worldwide. Modern neuroscience is still looking for a complete explanation of the intimate mechanisms of yawning. Moreover, its exact physiological purpose remains a subject of debate: some see yawning as a mechanism for stimulating wakefulness [1], while others contest this view and instead link yawing to sleepiness, but do not provide evidence for an arousing effect of yawning [2].
