• Gender Myth Busted: Study Shows No Such Thing As Male & Female Brains

    Article by Arjun Walia

    According to an article written for Psychology Today titled “Brain Differences Between Genders,” written by Gregory L. Jantz, Ph.D., the differences between genders extend far beyond physical appearance and general character traits, comprising instead major distinguishers between male and female brains.

    Much research supports this view. Scientists know, for example, that sex hormones begin to exert their influence during fetal development, and a recent study conducted by Israeli researchers which examined male and female brains found distinct differences in the developing fetus as early as 26 weeks into pregnancy. Using an ultrasound scanner, researchers were able to determine that the corpus callosum — the bridge of nerve tissue that connects the right and left sides of the brain — had thicker measurements in female fetuses compared to male fetuses. Adult brain scans have shown that this area might also remain larger in females.
