  1. 1. men vs. women<br />The difference in how we live , learn and play.<br />
  2. 2. The male brain<br />Male brains are larger than female brains<br />Men have approximately 6.5 times more gray matter in the brain than women<br />The frontal lobe which is responsible for problem-solving and decision making is larger in the male brain<br />The parietal cortex which is responsible for space perception is larger in the male brain<br />The amygdala which regulates sexual behavior is larger in the male brain<br />
  3. 3. The human brain<br />
  4. 4. The female brain<br />The female brain have about 10 times more white matter than the male brain<br />The female brain works faster than the male brain<br />The limbic cortex, responsible for regulating emotions is larger in the female brain<br />The female brain has about 12 percent more neurons than the male brain<br />
  5. 5.
  6. 6. How we use our brain:<br />Men tend to use more of the left side of their brain which is the more logical, systematic side.<br />Women employ both sides of their brain because the female brain can transfer data between the right and left side faster than the male brain<br />Women tend to be more emotional and empathetic than men<br />
  7. 7. Hypothesis<br />Men and women’s brains are structured differently. These differences are the foundations that support the reasons women’s brains are more empathetic and the male brain is more hard-wired. From size to subject matter, these differences within our brains affect how male and females learn, live and play. <br />
  8. 8. Methods<br />A recent survey was conducted to measure the male and females brains on empathy quotient and systemizing quotient.<br />Eight subjects were interviewed, four boys and four girls<br />The subjects ages were between 25-55 years old<br />Two surveys were issued, one to measure the empathy quotient and one to measure the systemizing quotient.<br />Each survey consisted of 60 statements that the subjects had to answer whether they strongly agree, slightly agree, slightly disagree or strongly disagree<br />
  9. 9. The results<br />Women scored much higher on the empathy tests than men<br />Men scored much higher on the systemizing test than women<br />
  10. 10. HOW THEY SCORED<br />
  11. 11. Conclusion<br />In conclusion the male and female brains have been proven to operate in different ways. My research supports the idea that male brains are more hard-wired and better at systemizing data. On the other hand the woman’s brain is more in tune with emotions and empathy based on the subjects studied in the surveys provided. <br />
