Some Brain Regions Are Much More Active in Women than Men
A new study from the USA discovers that many brain regions are much more active in women than in men.
For the research, a team of scientists, led by Dr. Daniel G. Amen of Amen Clinics, used a functional neuroimaging technique on more than 26,000 adults. The scientists analyzed the received results and concluded that women have higher activity in many brain regions, including those connected to impulse control, anxiety, and mood. This can explain why women more often suffer from some brain disorders.
Dr. Daniel G. Amen explains: “This is a very important study to help understand gender-based brain differences. The quantifiable differences we identified between men and women are important for understanding gender-based risk for brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.”
