The Difference Between the Brains of Men and Women



The Difference Between the Brains of Men and Women
The Difference Between the Brains of Men and Women
the differences between the brains of men and women lies in the size of the parts of the brain, how it is
related as well as how it works. The fundamental difference between the sexes that are:
1. spatial Differences
On the male brain tends to flourish and have a more complex such as spatial ability of designing
mechanical, measurement of the determination of the direction of abstraction, and the manipulation of
physical objects. No wonder if the man loves fiddling with the vehicle.
2. verbal Differences
The cortex of the brain man more sucked to perform spatial functions and tend to give a little on the
portion for producing and using words. A collection of nerves that connects the left-right brain or the
corpus collosum male brain is smaller than the female brain and a quarter. When the brain man just use
right brain hemispheres of the brain, women can maximize both. That’s why women are more talk than
men. In a study mentioned, women use about 20,000 words per day, while men only 7000 words!
3. Difference of chemicals
The brains of women more contain serotonin which makes it be calm. No weird if women more calm when
responding to the threat that involves physical, while men are more quickly fly off the handle. Other than
that, brain women also have oxytocin, i.e. substances that bind human beings with another human being
or with more. The two men’s brains suggest biological tendency to not act first rather than talk. This is in
contrast to the women.
4. smaller Memory
Central memory (h.) on brain women greater than in the male brain. This can answer the question why
when men easily forget, while women can remember every detail.
The above figure summarizes the well-accepted theory of male versus female brain function.
A new groundbreaking study of brain activity in males and females at rest has brought the
theory into question.
It turns out that, when males and females are scanned by fMRI while told to close their eyes
and not think about anything in particular, their brain activations are virtually the same.
Researchers examined the brain activity of 26 females and 23 males who rested in a scanner
and daydreamed. Three different well-characterized neural networks were analyzed for
differences between males and females: the executive control network, the salience network,
and the default mode network. The first two networks include several brain regions that
have been associated with cognitive task performance in many previous studies. When
subjects are at rest, these cognitive networks are deactivated but the resulting signal
provides insight to their intrinsic behaviour. The researchers chose to look at these 2
cognitive networks because of mixed findings from previous work that indicated possible
differences between associated male and female cognitive performance and brain activity.
However, when the signals among different regions within these networks were compared
(in a functional connectivity analysis), no differences between males and females were
The third network that was analyzed (default mode network) is a network that is activated
when subjects are at rest. Although the function of the default mode network is
controversial, activity in the brain regions of the network are thought to be associated with
daydreaming, thinking about the past and future, and gauging others' perspectives. Or if you
accept the classic theory of males versus female brain function, this is the network that
represents thoughts of sex and lame excuses for men, and thoughts of shopping and musical
sitcoms for women. The problem is: no differences between males and females in functional
connectivity of the default mode network were found either.
It should be noted that the findings did not match the hypothesis of the researchers, who
thought that differences between the sexes would be found because that would support the
findings of previous reports. However, this study had more subjects than most previous
studies on male versus female brain differences, so the statistical power is higher.
Furthermore, this is the first study to directly investigate male-female differences
in resting brains, so the findings do not necessarily contradict other studies that involved
concentration or attention.
The researchers go as far as to suggest that resting state fMRI studies do not need to be
controlled for sex because males and females have the same brain activity anyway.
You want me - I can smell it.
Most of us women can tell if a guy is 'into us'. We pick up on a vast array of nonverbal cues, not the mention the ever-obvious verbal ones. But I wouldn't say I
can smell sexual interest- would you? Probably not. But, as it turns out, women's
brains can distinguish the difference between sweat from a man who is aroused and
one that isn't, according to fresh research published in the Journal of Neuroscience
Is he hot or horny?
A woman's brain knows.
Scientists from Rice University used fMRI scans to take a look at women's brains while
they processed four different smells. The first was sweat from aroused men. The
second was sweat from the same men when not aroused. The third was a control with
PSP, a sex hormone which heightens arousal in women, matched to previously found
levels in aroused sweat. The last was a negative control with a neutral compound that
is in sweat, PEA. They wanted to know if PSP was the major sexual olfactory cue in
sweat or if there was more being produced by the horny boys.
To make the study truly neutral, the women weren't informed as to what they were
smelling. And, interestingly, few described the smells as human or sweaty. Some even
described them as 'floral'. None of the women figured out they were smelling the sweat
of aroused versus non-aroused men.
Well, I guess I should say none of the women consciously figured that out. However,
their brains told a different story.
The fMRI scans showed that the women's right orbitofrontal cortex and the right
fusiform regions significantly responded to the sexual sweat compared with the PEA
baseline, the neutral sweat or PSP. Also, the PSP (the hormone they thought might be
the signal) did not produce the same stimulus. Thus something else in the sweat of
aroused guys turned on a specific response in the women's brains.
In other words, women's brains know the difference between a guy that's hot and
bothered and one that isn't, even if they don't know it consciously. It makes me wonder
if they'll soon be producing colognes that are designed to get a woman turned on neurally, that is (none of this supposed pheromone crap). I mean, that's gotta be way
better than a pick up line...
Since I went there, here's one for you to take home - it's my personal favorite:
"You know, the good thing about being a scientist is that I'm very good at mixing
Sex takes place in the Brain. The Brain is the key Sex Organ. The informed intellect should make the
choices of sexual identity, preference, and sexual expression. But today the intellect is lessened as our
Society Slips more and more to the stupid side. The night life music has less and less words, less and less
intellect, less and less meaning. Desire’ has long stood for a different type of night life. A place where
you can be who your intellect chooses to be. No longer the need to be plastic, superficial, shallow or try
to be someone you are not. Desire’ offers a place where talent is more than a cock in a frock, a mime
with no rhyme, sight and no mind. It is a private club, not open to the mindless plastic wanderers. But
open to the hearts and souls of those seeking some intellect, some talent, some mindful entertainment,
some privacy some place to talk, to share the day, to actually meet new people.
People have been slipping to the stupid side. The general intelligence level is dwindling. People are
becoming sheep lead to the marketing impulses of the Ultra Rich. In my other books I dwell on these
issues deeply, but here I am to talk about the subtle differences of male and female, and cross gendered
brains and behavior. All for you to better understand yourself and others.
The word are of the brain is small, about the size of a golf ball and it is given about one million bits of
data a second. The other parts manage the body with innumerable cells and they get 10 to the 18 bits of
information to the body electric. So our word intellect is quite small and our unconscious or semi
conscious is in real control. Here we have our instincts and survival patterns. This includes sex. We all
have an instinct for sex to preserve our species and to find a mate to help take care of us.
The marketing companies use the body instincts to market us anything they like. Let me expand on the
brains unconscious ability to be influenced. Most of us are wired to respond to shapes, smells, sights,
touch, sounds, tastes in a certain way. The brain has to sensory inputs and each sense has its pattern of
sexual turn on to satisfy our sensual desires. These instincts have some universal biological similarities
across cultures and some interesting differences in the male versus female brain. First of all at this time
it appears that the female body is the universal turn on. It is quite possible that the male was a universal
turn on in ancient Greece. The Ancient Greeks were turned on by the male form and they had a
different idea about being naked in public or in games. They allowed the choice of sexual identity to be
in the mind. Homosexuality was not disdained. In fact in the military it was used to bring the soldiers
closer together and strengthen the bonds for them to fight to save each other.
But today there is the female form we culturally all tend to react to. When we see a beautiful face such
as these:
We instinctually respond with interest. The shape, colors, makeup, hair all carefully designed to turn on
attention and arousal. This starts an increase in blood flow, hormone release and pheromone
production. It has universal effects on most people. Extra female characteristics are interesting, where
excess male are often not.
The two mounds of the ass and the tits are the biggest turn on. Pictures like these are used by marketing
people everywhere to draw attention to a advertisement by sexual arousal of interest with no promise
of sex just the promise of eye candy delight, a rather small reward for diverting our attention. Then
given the social insecurity most people have about themselves, combined with low IQ; they can be lead
to believe that if the buy this product they will be made beautiful or at least interesting as well.
Vicious Cycle
In the chapter on pheromones we can discuss the brain and smell. But now we need to point out the
more obvious sex difference. Men’s brains are turned on mostly by sight. They want to see breasts, ass,
legs, make up, earrings, and fashion. A man’s first attraction is most often he likes what he sees. So the
women to get a man must try to be as perfect as possible for sight. She primps and does her female
ritual to enhance her appearance.
The two mounds of the ass and the breasts are triggers. Together with a thin waste they can indicate a
sexual active person and perhaps a good mother. But today this is not so true, but the impulse
continues. Our biology is slow to adapt to real life.
Women are most often turned on by sound. They wait to hear a man’s pick up line. And if he talks with
compassion, humor, and intelligence she can be turned on. So a man does not need to primp as much
but works on what to say and the more interesting his life the more interest she will have. The man
brain is so visual he does not know or care that a lip synch singer is not really singing. All he cares about
is the sight. If the girl or trans looks good he is happy. A woman listens and is not satisfied by lip synch.
She wants to hear a real voice a real sound.
As we see from the next two pics on brains there is also a cross brain difference in cross gendered
people, but still the need for sight and sound are crucial in starting a relationship.

Neuroscientists Find That Men And Women Respond Differently
To Stress
April 1, 2008 — Functional magnetic resonance imaging of men and women
under stress showed neuroscientists how their brains differed in response to
stressful situations. In men, increased blood flow to the left orbitofrontal cortex
suggested activation of the "fight or flight" response. In women, stress
activated the limbic system, which is associated with emotional responses.
There are many books and movies that highlight the psychological differences between men and women
-- Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus, for example; but now, neurologists say they have brain
images that prove male and female brains do work differently -- at least under stress.
Same species, different genders … And now, a new high-tech scientific study reveals the differences
between men and women may really start at the top. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania used
a high-tech imaging method to scan the brains of 16 men and 16 women. The subjects were placed
inside a functional magnetic resonance imaging machine, or fMRI.
"Using this state-of-the art-functional magnetic resonance imaging technique, we try to directly visualize
what the human brain does during stress," Jiongjiong Wang, Ph.D., a research assistant professor of
radiology and neurology at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, told Ivanhoe.
Researchers then purposely induced moderate performance stress by asking the men and women to
count backward by 13, starting at 1,600. Researchers monitored the subject's heart rate. They also
measured the blood flow to the brain and checked for cortisol, a stress hormone.
When the scans were completed, neuroscientists consistently found differences between the men's
stressed-out brains and the women's. Men responded with increased blood flow to the right prefrontal
cortex, responsible for "fight or flight." Women had increased blood flow to the limbic system, which is
also associated with a more nurturing and friendly response.
Doctors say this information may someday lead to a screening process for mood disorders. "In the future,
when physicians treat patients -- especially depression, PTSD -- they need to take this into account that
really, gender matters," Dr. Wang explains.
Other experts caution that hormones, genetics and environmental factors may influence these results,
bringing to light yet another difference between men and women. Neuroscientists say the changes in the
brain during stress response also lasted longer in women.
WHAT IS MRI? Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field rather
than X-rays to take clear and detailed pictures of internal organs and tissues. fMRI uses this technology
to identify regions of the brain where blood vessels are expanding, chemical changes are taking place, or
extra oxygen is being delivered.
These are indications that a particular part of the brain is processing information and giving commands to
the body. As a patient performs a particular task, the metabolism will increase in the brain area
responsible for that task, changing the signal in the MRI image. So by performing specific tasks that
correspond to different functions, scientists can locate the part of the brain that governs that function.
FIGHT OR FLIGHT: Certain events act as "stressors," triggering the nervous system to produce
hormones to respond to the perceived danger. Specifically, the adrenal glands produce more adrenaline
and cortisol, releasing them into the bloodstream. This speeds up heart and breathing rates, and
increases blood pressure and metabolism. These and other physical changes help us to react quickly and
effectively under pressure.
This is known as the "stress response," or more commonly, as the "fight or flight response." But if even
low levels of stress go on too long, it can be detrimental to one's health. The nervous system remains
slightly activated and continues to pump out extra stress hormones over an extended period, leaving the
person feeling depleted or overwhelmed, and weakening the body's immune system.
STRESS-REDUCING TIPS: There are several easy, practical things people can do to reduce the amount
of stress in their lives. (1) Be realistic and don't try to be perfect, or expect others to be so. (2) Don't over-
schedule; cut out an activity or two when you start to feel overwhelmed. (3) Get a good night's sleep. (4)
Get regular exercise to manage stress -- just not excessive or compulsive exercise -- and follow a healthy
diet. (5) Learn to relax by building time into your schedule for reading or a nice long bath.
Key To Happiness Is Gratitude, And Men May Be Locked Out
ScienceDaily (Mar. 19, 2009) — With Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and high
school and college graduations upcoming, there will be plenty of gift-giving
and well wishes. When those start pouring in, let yourself be grateful—it’s the
best way to achieve happiness according to several new studies conducted by
Todd Kashdan, associate professor of psychology at George Mason
Gratitude, the emotion of thankfulness and joy in response to receiving a gift, is one of the essential
ingredients for living a good life, Kashdan says. Kashdan’s most recent paper, which was recently
published online at the Journal of Personality, reveals that when it comes to achieving well-being, gender
plays a role. He found that men are much less likely to feel and express gratitude than women.
“Previous studies on gratitude have suggested that there might be a difference in gender, and so we
wanted to explore this further—and find out why. Even if it is a small effect, it could make a huge
difference in the long run,” says Kashdan.
In one study, Kashdan interviewed college-aged students and older adults, asking them to describe and
evaluate a recent episode in which they received a gift. He found that women compared with men
reported feeling less burden and obligation and greater levels of gratitude when presented with gifts. In
addition, older men reported greater negative emotions when the gift giver was another man.
“The way that we get socialized as children affects what we do with our emotions as adults,” says
Kashdan. “Because men are generally taught to control and conceal their softer emotions, this may be
limiting their well-being.”
As director of the Laboratory for the Study of Social Anxiety, Character Strengths, and Related
Phenomena at Mason, Kashdan is interested in the assessment and cultivation of well-being, curiosity,
gratitude and meaning and purpose in life. He has been active in the positive psychology movement since
2000, when he taught one of the first college courses on the science of happiness.
Kashdan says that if he had to name three elements that are essential for creating happiness and
meaning in life it would be meaningful relationships, gratitude, and living in the present moment with an
attitude of openness and curiosity. His book “Curious?,” which outlines ways people can enhance and
maintain the various shades of well-being, is scheduled for release in April 2009 with HarperCollins.
And of course there are crazy people who will do anything to try to advertise themselves and attract the
other sex. These often demented and uncontrollable maniacs can be seen everywhere.
