DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN
Men don't listen. Women can't read maps. Men snore more. Women are less likely to have affairs. Should those statements be dismissed as stereotypes, or can we point to tangible discrepancies - behaviorally and neurologically speaking - along gender lines? This ABC News program explores sex differences and the brain circuitry behind them. Presenting an interview with Dr. Louann Brizendine, author of the controversial book The Female Brain, the program covers such provocative topics as teen brain chemistry and development, the ways that sex is discussed in "mixed company", and the powerful hormones brought on by motherhood. Renowned transgender neurobiologist Ben Barres is also featured.
