Men And Women's Brains Are 'wired Differently'

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-25198063

Men and women's brains are wired in completely different ways which may explain why the sexes excel at certain tasks, brain scans reveal.

US researchers at the University of Pennsylvania scanned the brains of nearly 1,000 men, women, boys and girls and found striking differences

I've done some of this. Diffusion tensor imaging. Basically you can track nerve fibre bundles by the fact that water diffuses along the bundles. It's fun stuff.

I am doing some diffusion weighted nmr at this very minute, but on something somewhat more mundane.

What happens at the back of the brain ? Burds don't seem to use it much - if at all.

Is it perhaps the "reasonable thinking when having an argument with a bloke" section ?

That'll be the logic and accountability areas ;)

:D

Serious question for one minute - is the front of the brain more closely linked to psychopathic/mental behaviour etc ?

There is a thin line between sanity and insanity. ;)

The big question is whether these differences are biological or if the brains develop differently due to differences in upbringing. Per the OP's link:

Women scored well on attention, word and face memory, and social cognition. Men performed better on spatial processing and sensori-motor speed.

So, if the boys spend their lunchtimes playing football and the girls spend it playing with dolls, would that no explain the difference?

Those pictures look a bit like the female brain in the Harry Enfield sketch. (Fluffy kittens etc.).

I would be interested to know which bit of the male brain makes them 'look for' something by merely opening a cupboard or drawer and expecting the item in question to leap out at them.

Or is that just Mr B?

Is Mrs B confessing to bad cupboard organisation?

Ah no it's "man looking".

A compete waste of time designed I think just to infuriate anyone else in the house to go and stand next to the item and point.

You know where it is because you bloody well moved it and put it there.

How am I supposed to find stuff if you keep hiding, I mean 'moving' it?

see see...women like to waste time moving stuff around all the time. Men go straight to it, because it`s where they left it (should be if no woman around)...women like to edge forwards at road junctions...men stop and then go..easy...women just need drama,continuous movement,a buzz..oh I give up

That's because we can't see it. Our eyes are focussed on the distant horizon for potential prey or threats. We can't just drop our focus to find a coloured tupperware in the fridge at a moment's notice. :P

It's always your stuff you can't find though. Important bits of paper you should have filed somewhere safe.

Unless you're claiming the coloured tupperware is yours.

Do you know where the clean towels live? And the wet ones?

Um, do we have an airing cupboard? They could be there.

You don't have to know if you keep them all in the same place (on the floor).
