The brain of men - bigger, neurons of women - denser


The differences between women and men are given by the distinct ways in which the brain works. The brain of women differs from that of men. From here, the misunderstandings. Women are more talkative and put a higher price on communication and maintaining relationships, while men have a habit of going directly to action, motivated by a specific purpose. The differences between men and women can be seen from birth, say US experts quoted by The Sunday Times.
The nucleus of cells in the brain of women is eight times larger than in men. In addition, the brain of men is about 15a larger than in women, but in them the neurons in the brain are denser. According to the latest studies, the male brain has an additional two billion neurons, but in women, the amount of substance made up of dendrites, axons and synapses is higher, which means that the cells in the brain communicate better with each other.
Emotions activate both hemispheres in women's brains, while in men only the right hemisphere. This explains why women express their emotions verbally and why they tend to maintain relationships, while men are more interested in acting, focusing on purpose.
Men develop traits such as aggressiveness and have a very developed sense of competition. These are closely related to the testosterone level. Instead, women excel at expressing themselves and maintaining relationships. A recent study shows that women say around 20,000 words a day, while men only 7,000.
Another difference between the sexes is that girls are more interested than boys in building long-term relationships. This is evidenced since birth, when girls maintain eye contact longer than boys.
Moreover, girls have, as a child, a better visual memory than boys. In addition, girls are twice as receptive as boys to mother's words. On the other hand, boys are more willing than girls to take risks. Neuropsychologist Doreen Kimura identified a link between body asymmetry and different behaviors of men and women, explained by hormonal variations. According to the specialist, men with the right testicle and women with larger breasts tend to develop a predominantly male behavior. If, on the other hand, the testicle and the left breast are larger, the behavior is closer to the female one.
