What do you do if a cartoon character cries and you want to stop it?
That’s a pretty common experience in the United States, according to a new study.
In fact, the study suggests that crying cartoon characters is actually a sign of emotional distress, especially for young children.
The research team, led by Dr. Anjali Datta, a psychologist at the University of Texas at Austin, examined over 5,000 people who had experienced cartoon characters crying and found that the crying was a “sign of emotional discomfort” and a cause of distress for over 70 percent of those surveyed.
Datta and her colleagues also discovered that the people most likely to be affected by cartoon crying were children.
When people are crying in cartoons, their eyes, mouths, cheeks and ears become red.
The researchers then asked people to identify the crying character, and they found that about 70 percent were likely to see the cartoon character crying in a cartoon, and more than 90 percent of the participants saw a crying cartoon character.
But that’s not all the study found.
Researchers found that people who watched cartoon crying tended to have lower levels of depression and anxiety than people who didn’t watch cartoon crying.
When it comes to depression, the researchers found that children who watched cartoons more often tended to be more depressed.
This, in turn, was linked to depression symptoms among adults.
Researchers also found that when people watched cartoon characters cry, their brains responded differently to them.
When they watched cartoon tears, they showed more activity in the amygdala, a region of the brain associated with fear.
This activity can be associated with a higher level of emotional arousal, such as crying, in the brain.
The amygdala is a part of the limbic system that is responsible for regulating emotions.
And the more crying a cartoon characters produces, the more the amygdala is activated.
These emotional reactions can result in the person experiencing a heightened fear response, as well as a heightened anxiety response, the research team found.
What’s more, when people who watch cartoon characters do it more often, they tend to experience higher levels of anxiety and depression, even when they aren’t watching cartoon characters.
This suggests that people react differently to cartoon characters in ways that are associated with distress.
For Datta’s research, the team collected data from over 1,000 adults in their early to mid-20s.
These participants were asked about their experiences with crying cartoon animals and other cartoon characters that were crying, whether or not they cried, and whether they were happy or sad about the cry.
The study team then asked the participants to rate how sad or happy they felt about the cartoons they had watched, as compared to a neutral control condition.
The study team also asked participants to describe their emotional response to the cartoons.
They found that crying cartoons made people more depressed, and this increased the amount of distress they experienced in the short term.
The team also found a relationship between cartoon crying and the amount and severity of emotional symptoms that participants experienced.
People who watched more cartoon tears also tended to experience more depression and more anxiety.
The higher their depression and anxious symptoms were, the higher the levels of distress that they felt.
This suggests that children and adolescents with crying cartoons can have more distress and anxiety due to crying cartoons.
When these cartoons cause distress, children and teens are more likely to feel distressed and anxious.
Children who cried cartoon characters more often also were more likely than children who didn�t watch cartoon tears to experience depressive symptoms.
The children who cried cartoons also were also more likely overall to experience anxiety and depressive symptoms, as measured by the World Health Organization’s Depression Rating Scale.
People also report experiencing more crying cartoon cartoons when they are younger.
And the more frequently children cry cartoons, the worse they are at coping with stress, the data showed.
Researchers are now studying the correlation between cartoon-induced crying and depression in young people.
The findings could help guide the development of better ways to help people who suffer from depression and other anxiety disorders.
