'An evolutionary point in gender history'

Say Cheek
Leadership and the Sexes
Michael Gurian and Barbara Annis

Woman’s brain is wired differently

To most men these statements may not appeal: That there is 15 to 20 per cent more blood flow in a woman’s brain than in a man’s at any given time; that unlike the female brain, the male brain shuts off many times a day; and that the male’s memory centre is generally less active than the female’s during emotional experiences.
Neurobiologists have been able to track over 100 such biological differences, write Michael Gurian and Barbara Annis in Leadership and the Sexes.
