Get to know your brain and the way it affects your behaviour in your sexual, romantic and familial relationships. Join the journey of neuronal sex and gender differences in the brain and its hormones, and discover how different stages in life change our brain, perception and the way we form and maintain relationships.
Until around 21 years ago, scientists knew of several structural sexual dimorphisms of the brain, but they did not think that sex had any impact on how the human brain performs daily tasks. Through fMRI and PET scan studies, a great deal of information regarding the differences between male and female brains and how much they differ in regards to both structure and function has been uncovered.
Has that created the blue brain and the pink brain? and how can we use the understanding of gender and the brain to improve communication in romantic relationships?
