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.”
