Men and Women's Brain Are Wired Differently
There is truth behind the thinking that "men are from Mars and women are from Venus."  Apparently, there are gender differences in brain connections, and these variations may influence the way men and women perceive reality, process information, form judgments and behave socially. Here is the scientific explanation of man's one-track mind...
In 2011, Dr. Jahanshad and her UCLA collaborators conducted a brain-imaging study of healthy twins (147 women and 87 men), to trace connections in the brain. She discovered "significant" sex differences in areas of the brain's frontal lobe, which is associated with self-control, speech and decision-making. Another study of brain imaging (949 healthy young people, 521 females and 428 males) by Dr. Verma's team at the University of Pennsylvania, found the myriad connections between important parts of the brain developed differently in girls and boys as they grow. Their results showed different patterns of brain connections among young women and young men; women are mostly better connected left-to-right and right-to-left across the two brain hemispheres. This finding suggests that women might be better wired for multitasking and analytical thought, which require coordination of activity in both hemispheres. On the other hand (or hemisphere), men may be better wired for more-focused tasks that require attention to one thing a time.
