In this groundbreaking book, Dr Louann Brizendine describes the uniquely flexible structure of the female brain and its constant, dynamic state of change - the key difference that separates it from that of the male - and reveals how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and whom they'll love. She also reveals the neurological explanations behind why... * A woman remembers fights that a man insists never happened... * Thoughts about sex enter a woman's brain perhaps once every couple of days, but mayenter a man's brain up to once every minute... * A woman's brain goes on high alert during pregnancy - and stays that way long after giving birth... * A woman over 50 is more likely to initiate divorce than a man... * Women tend to know what people are feeling, while men can't spot an emotion unless someone cries or threatens them with bodily harm! Accessible, fun and compelling, and based on more than three decades of research, The Female Brain will help women to better understand themselves - and the men in their lives.

Ironically, the organ with the greatest reason to differ between the sexes, the brain, is often viewed as the most androgynous of all. Are there differences? Almost by convention, male animals are used in laboratory experiments in neuroscience. Even in clinical drug trials in humans, females are often excluded from the early phases of testing because of the risk of pregnancy and because females tend to be inconsistent in their responses due to the influence of their hormones and the menstrual cycle. The flaw in this reasoning is enormous: These very results are often applied to females. In The Female Brain, Cynthia Darlington examines the evidence for structural and functional differences between the male and female brain in an accessible, straightforward manner, while providing substantial scientific material for the academic reader.

Most of these questions were repeated, sometimes with slight differences, to analyze trends in behaviors. But, generally speaking, the conversations were selected in order to give an overview on how most women, and especially beautiful women, think. This research, and the notes below every interaction, will allow you to see more clearly into the female mind and know why women behave in certain ways.

This is not a book about the differences between male and female brains. This book explores women's health issues through the lens of neurobiology. Dr Sarah McKay is a neuroscientist who knows everything worth knowing about women's brains. In The Female Brain, Dr McKay will teach us what happens to the brains of women as they cycle through the phases of life, which are unique to females by virtue of their biology and in particular their hormones. With cutting-edge science this book will weave together findings from the research lab and interviews with neuroscientists and other researchers in neuroendocrinology, brain development, brain health and ageing, to help you understand the workings of your own mind. It will include insights into brain development during infancy, childhood and the teenage years (including the onset of puberty), as well as advice on mental health and the ageing brain.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Female Brain is a book by Louann Brizendine, whose main thesis is that women's behavior is radically different from that of men due to hormonal differences. Brizendine says that the human female brain is affected by the following hormones: estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, (oxytocin), neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin), and difference in architecture of the brain (prefrontal cortex, hypothalamus, amygdale) that regulates such hormones and neurotransmitters. Brizendine's book includes seven chapters. Each chapter is dedicated to either a specific part of a woman's life such as puberty, motherhood, and menopause or a specific dimension of a women's emotional life such as feelings, love & trust, and sex. The book also includes three appendices on hormone therapy, postpartum depression, and sexual orientation.

We all know the opposite sex can be a baffling, even infuriating, species. Why do most men use the phone to exchange information rather than have a chat? Why do women love talking about relationships and feelings with their girlfriends while men seem drawn to computer games, new gadgets, or the latest sports scores? Does it really all just come down to our upbringing? In The Essential Difference, leading psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen confirms what most of us had suspected all along: that male and female brains are different. This groundbreaking and controversial study reveals the scientific evidence (present even in one-day-old babies) that proves that female-type brains are better at empathizing and communicating, while male brains are stronger at understanding and building systems-not just computers and machinery, but abstract systems such as politics and music. Most revolutionary of all, The Essential Difference also puts forward the compelling new theory that autism (and its close relative, Asperger's Syndrome) is actually an example of the extreme male brain. His theory can explain why those who live with this condition are brilliant at analyzing the most complex systems yet cannot relate to the emotional lives of those with whom they live. Understanding our essential difference, Baron-Cohen concludes, may help us not only make sense of our partners' foibles, but also solve one of the most mysterious scientific riddles of our time.
