Good things about Brain Sex. View all 12 comments. Lists with This Book. Found some help there in understanding the differences between men and women so I could be aware of some of them in my work. Compartmentalising their various mental states, they have difficulty expressing right-brain emotion in left-brain language. In any case, I choose to validate myself, instead, as normal because according to the book I am not almost wholly male brained and that is just as natural.

Mostly this book told me things I already knew; they just told me it was science that made it this way. The reason is a certain band, located in the forehead region,that connects the left side of the brain to the right side.

The answers lie in the basic biological differences between the male and female brain, which, say the authors, make it impossible for the sexes to share equal emotional or intellectual qualities.

I read the book precisely to try to release myself from the “romanticism” total absence of “logic”, and th Basic for starting to understand that nature makes some things easy for some people and some other things Since male foetuses have to be acted upon by testosterone in order to develop male brains, whereas females, in order to develop female brains, only require not to come into contact with male hormones, there is more chance of error when it comes to men, and therefore male homosexuals outnumber lesbians four to one.

Annee actual sex took place, least of all between brains. Interesting, but enormously misleading. The science presented in the book clearly explains this, but I’m more curious about the percentages of the population that exhibit these differences, and the braiinsex of Brain Sex don’t seem to examine this very closely, instead making broad, sweeping statements about men and map reading and women and emotions. The average female brain has particularly focused verbal centres in both halves, but other skills are diffused; a thicker corpus callosum and the distribution of skill centres allows for more extensive connection among the various mental functions.

Calling homosexuality perversion is also nice.

Mainly that equality means ‘sameness’ – no difference. I get that this book is trying to be accessible to readers, but it almost presents a kind of pseudo reality braibsex then again it was published in the late 80s, so a lot’s changed since then in terms of neurological research and science Feb 25, Mostafa Mamdouh rated it it was amazing.
