Are men and womed wired up differently……literally?

It has long been said in jest that the brains of men and women work very differently. Perhaps this is true as Neuroscience studies at University of Pennsylvania suggests.

Neuroscientists have found that there is greater connectivity from front to back in one hemisphere in the brains of men, whereas there is more connectivity between the left and right hemispheres in women.

This is potentially, evidence that backups our gender stereotypes that men are single-task focused whereas women are better multi-taskers.

This research has been criticised by Neuropsychologists at Oxford University for not accounting for how connections can change over time due to changes in behaviour and environment.
