Differences in the structures of the brain in men and women

The idea that male and female brains are different, is all new confirm. However, these differences are much deeper than expected, writes The Daily Mail. So, scientists have found that the male brain at the mass is really superior to women. But the latter is more "industrious" — he works constantly and is never at rest.


In addition, the difference in the male and female brain affect how they react differently to various diseases. For example, women are more prone to depression. This is due to differences in the limbic system responsible for emotional processing.


Scientists believe that getting into a difficult situation, women perceive more negative events that causes excessive anxiety, the woman does not eat, sleep and eventually falls into depression.


In addition, dementia and migraine headaches are also more typical for women. At the same time, neurological diseases such as Parkinson's disease, more common in males. They also are twice as likely to develop schizophrenia. The symptoms are the harder than women.


Women, as a rule, longer and better remember information. Studies have shown that this phenomenon is associated with increased activity in the hippocampus region of the brain responsible for the movement of data to the cortex for long term storage.


However, women are much more at risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. Moreover, the weaker sex, the disease progresses much more rapidly than strong.
