Does yawning reduce stress?

Margaret Wilson-Hinds  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Does yawning help to reduce stress?

My latest guide dog yawned a lot when setting out on a walk when I first had
him. Now that he is used to things and more relaxed he doesn't yawn nearly
as much.

Still a great show and it's good to hear it on FiveLive too.
