    While human beings find periods of quiet solitude often healing, psychologists say that long-term extreme isolation can be detrimental. And though it is well-established that those deprived of social contact are prone to elevated blood pressure and a weakened immune system, the greatest effects appear to be mental. For example, McGill University researchers monitored college students who had volunteered to spend time alone in soundproofed rooms. As time passed, the participants became increasingly uneasy, talking or singing to break the silence. They reported eventually having hallucinations, which ranged from abstract light forms to strange scenes featuring animals and common household items. According to experts, the human brain is used to being bombarded with external cues and feedback, but total isolation deprives it of this. The brain attempts to make sense of the little information available, even creating a world that completely alters an individual’s perception of reality.

    ① The advantages to spending time alone
    ② How total isolation affects the mind
    ③ Physical ailments common to lonely people
    ④ Effective ways of dealing with social isolation
