本周除Free talk 外的话题讨论： 大脑也有性别之分吗？Are male and female brains biologically different?
Pop neuroscience has long been fascinated with uncovering secret biological differences between male and female brains. A large study in the UK found that many regions of men's brains were larger than women's, and that women on average had thicker cerebral cortices. What does that mean for how the brain works? Unclear.
But there's no doubt that whatever their brains look like, behavior and school performance differences between men and women are strongly shaped by socialization. The question of whether men and women have innately different brains rarely fails to get people riled up.
