Variation of salivary cortisol levels changes at a pre-, b during, and c post-experiment measurements. The bars in ac show changes in the salivary cortisol levels of participants in the control condition (left) and Japanese cedar wood panels (experimental; light) conditions: male participants (white) and female participants (black). CNT indicates the control condition, while WOOD indicates the experimental condition. The bars in a show that differences between conditions were not significant. The bars in b show that the difference in values between male and female participants were significant (p = 0.013) in the control condition. The bars in c show that the difference in values between the male and female participants was significant (p = 0.027) in the control condition. *statistical significance (p < 0.05). Data are shown as mean ± SEM
