    DescriptionSince we have not yet been able to prove that tears from animals are associated with emotions, crying associated with feelings has so far been reserved for the human species. But why are we crying? There is no clear answer to the question, since the empirical discussion about emotional crying is apparently still at the very beginning. However, there are already some interesting findings.
