Boredom does not directly depend on changes in the physiological state. When a person is bored, the cerebral cortex is dominated by inhibition processes, but at the same time there is a small area of excitement associated with performing monotonous work or waiting for its completion. People who are bored are usually distracted, impatient and dissatisfied, and want to avoid conditions that make it impossible to act.

Clinical trials have shown that in a state of artificially induced boredom, the subjects’ blood levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, increased level of which indicates excessive activity of the hypothalamic-pituitaryadrenal axis (HPA). Chronically high cortisol levels are known to be associated with a number of stress-related diseases such as stroke, heart disease and diabetes.
