The difference between women and men's brains

This bit of information is meant to help us understand why men and women may be different. Please keep in mind as you read that this paints a broad generalization - people are individuals and are unique in their own way - and do not always fit in these categories.

One research, which involved imaging the brains of nearly 1,000 adolescents, found that male brains had more connections within hemispheres (forward and back), whereas female brains were more connected between hemispheres (side to side). The results, which apply to the population as a whole and not individuals, suggest that male brains may be optimized for motor skills, and female brains may be optimized for combining analytical and intuitive thinking. Dr. Ragini Verma, associate professor of radiology at the University of Pennsylvania medical school.

If we apply that information to our primitive beginnings, men were hunters and women gatherers.

Men needed to think in a linear manner (front and back), take in all the information, set their goal and "single mindedly" attain their goal = prey = food. Now a day, they might still approach certain aspects of life in this manner, especially if they're stressed and the fight or flight nervous system is kicked in.

Women's brains are wired to be the gatherers. They had to continuously stay in touch with the other women as they gathered food in the forests or fields. They had to watch for predators, for other women, children running around, communicate where the best food was, and remember what was cooking, drying or happening back at the "home base". So women's brains tend to see things in a whole way (sideways), everything is connected to something else and it's relationship oriented because there is safety in numbers.

Dr. Hall, chiropractor and functional neurology instructor says: "men need to walk, women need to walk and talk".

I believe this little bit of information is important for people to know because it allows us to accept the other sex for their differences. A man may not be able to fulfill all of a woman's emotional needs; and a woman may not be able to understand a man's need to accomplish the next goal, the next success.

Our group is an opportunity for women to 'walk and talk' with other women. Women who may be able to understand and provide support in a wonderfully unique women way.
