Men And Women The Differnce In The Brain
Score one for exasperated women: New research suggests men really do listen with just half their brains.
In a study of 20 men and 20 women, brain scans showed that men when listening mostly used the left sides of their brains, the region long associated with understanding language. Women in the study, however, used both sides.
Other studies have suggested that women ?can handle listening to two conversations at once,? said Dr. Joseph T. Lurito, an assistant radiology professor at Indiana University School of Medicine. ?One of the reasons may be that they have more brain devoted to it.? Battle of the Sexes
Lurito?s findings, presented today at the Radiological Society of North America?s annual meeting, don?t necessarily mean women are better listeners.
It could be that ?it?s harder for them,? Lurito suggested, since they apparently need to use more of their brains than men to do the same task.
?I don?t want a battle of the sexes,? he said. ?I just want people to realize that men and women? may process language differently.
