Scientists primarily study four primary areas of difference in male and female brains: Processing, Chemistry, Structure and activity. The differences in male and female brains in those areas show up all over the world.
The average brain weight of the adult male brain was 1336g. For the adult female brain 1198g. With increasing age, brain weight decreases by 2.7g in male and by 2.2g in females per year. Men have stronger connections between brain areas for motor and spatial skills… On average, male brains are 10% larger than female brains. “However, bigger doesn’t mean smarter”.
Are male and female brains different?
Of course, there isn’t a simple answer to that question. While some brain features are more common in one sex than the other, and some are typically found in both. Most people have a unique mix.
Who is better?
Women have more connections going left and right across the two halves of the brain. This could give them an advantage in pulling together information from different sources and drawing conclusions. The left half of the brain handles logic, thinking, and the right is associated with initiation.
Men’s brains have more connections from the front to the back, which may heighten their reception. There may be more attuned to what’s going on around them so they can take action. That means males tend to do a better job at tasks that need hand-eye coordination and understanding where objects are in space, such as throwing a ball or hammering a nail.
