Male-Female Differences 8: The Brain and Nervous System – 1

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.

The present entry is for Rollo Tomassi’s The Rational Male.

I will be posting some of the works I read in this regard, with a couple of bullets about each. I have yet to start drafting my take on the Men’s Movement in its variants and issues, but I intend to once I get over some of the other important projects I’m currently working on. In other words these entries will simply be a placeholder for my own reminder.

This entry is about a book called The Game, by the man who became the most popular name in the world of pickup artistry, Neil Strauss.
