No Battle of the Sexes, our Brains just Wire Differently | EDUCACIÓN 3.0 - EDUCATION 3.0 | Scoop.it

Women can't parallel park and men can't communicate with emotional intelligence. These common stereotypes get used as ammunition in the so-called battle between the sexes.

 

But, a new study by the University of Pennsylvania provides support for these (often unfair) standards.

 

Previous studies have looked at brain size; men's tend to be around 10 per cent bigger than women's, and composition; men have more white matter in their brains, which is linked to motor skills, while women have more grey matter, which is linked to sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, and speech.
