  • Baby makes 250,000 new nerve cell per minuteborn with 100 billion neurons parallel processors small number is connected at birth and it grows by age 3 it reaches 1000 trillionat age 11 it starts pruning to form efficient circuits the most stable is 25 – or 26 yes teenagers have physical reason too men have a worse state lolnerves that fire together wire and get more connected those who dnt may get broken link90% is glial cells nutrition repairing , supporting 268 miles per hours8 weeks it’s female onlyafter this a dramatic change happens some connections break in men Corpus collusom grows more and more development goes on in femalesafter 3 months the skills in eye contact and mutual face gazing improve by 400% in baby gurland in a baby boy ? Not at all :D
  • Everyone has his own structure as the brain is a huge learning and adaptive machine some people born with damage could rally live with half brain and maintain normal intelligence
  • Gray matter forms the brain's information-processing centers, and white matter serves as wiring to connect the processing centers.Same number of brain cellsIn women's brains, the neurons are packed in tightly, so that they're closer together. This proximity, in conjunction with speedy connections facilitated by the white matter, is another reason why women's brains work faster. Some women even have as many as 12 percent more neurons than men do [source: Hotz]. In studying women's brains, psychologist Sandra Witelson found that those neurons were most densely crowded on certain layers of the cortex, namely the ones responsible for signals coming in and out of the brain. This, Witelson believed, may be one reason why women tend to score higher on tests that involve language and communication, and she came to believe that these differences were present from birth [source: Hotz].Light speed connections
  • Men tend to process better in the left hemisphere of the brain while women tend to process equally well between the two hemispheres 16 feb 1995 they found this change but why? 1st physical proof but why? the corpus callosum It is the largest white matter structure in the brainmen uses grey matter ,more women use white matter significantly larger in musicians than non-musicians,the brain is not hard wired people could live with one side only intelligence can be normal with half a brain when a man speak he uses left sidewhen the women spoke they used both sides , but they're also accessing different sections of the brain for the same task.In one study, men and women were asked to sound out different words. Men relied on just one small area on the left side of the brain to complete the task, while the majority of women used areas in both sides of the brain [source: Kolata]. However, both men and women sounded out the words equally well, indicating that there is more than one way for the brain to arrive at the same result.
  • An area of the brain called the inferior-parietal lobule (IPL) is typically significantly larger in men, especially on the left side, than in women. This section of the brain is thought to control mental mathematical ability, and probably explains why men frequently perform higher in mathematical tasks than do women. Interestingly, this is the same area of Einstein’s brain that was discovered to be abnormally large. The IPL also processes sensory information, and the larger right side in women allows them to, such as a baby crying in the night.“The study found that parts of the frontal lobe, responsible for problem-solving and decision-making, and the limbic cortex, responsible for regulating emotions, were larger in women In men, the parietal cortex, which is involved in space perception, and the amygdala, which regulates sexual and social behavior, were larger
  • Cingulilgiras more bigger and active in females
  • Men vs women

    1. 1. Verbal Skills? Bigger Brain?Brain Models
    2. 2. Size
    3. 3. Left brain side vs. right brain side
    4. 4. Women vs. Men brain SkillsMathematical processing Relational and Language and text processing , excel in making agreement , politicsSpatial cognition and space perception Uses land marks to navigate(oriented objects in space) much poor :Duses abstraction such as north southLeft brain oriented Uses both equally , operates fasterBigger size Smaller sizeDistributed PackedLess , focused , less stressed Ability to bond and communicate emotions connects with physical status more more subconscious processing powerMusic processing of women voice , left Listeners , Voice imagingbrain oriented listeningGrey matter 6 times more White matter 10 times moremore concentration on single tasking and reactive over thinkingworking in different moods
    5. 5. And as for intelligence,average IQ scores are the samefor both men and women .
