The next few blog entries summarize the main research findings on gender differences in the functioning and structure of the brain, including biochemical processes.
The biochemistry of the human body in general, and the brain in particular, is highly complex, which means that the terminology will be technical. I am trying to simplify the points as much as possible for the benefit of most readers, and I will continue to add graphs and links to other resource, should you wish to better understand the different topics. I hope that you will have the patience to continue following this important series to the end and see that it was worth it, even though it may seem a little technical at times.
As with all other entries in this series, when I use “male” and “female” I am always referring to humans, unless otherwise specified.
