A recent study reveals structural differences between the brains of men and women. Men’s brains seemed to be wired to facilitate the connection between perception and coordination, which favours some motor and spatial activities; women’s brains, on the other hand, seem to be wired to encourage intuition, memory and social relations. The differing developmental paths seen in male and female brains starting in adolescence seems to have been confirmed by this study (PNAS doi/10.1073/pnas.1316909110.2013). Could these findings hinder the acceptance of some of the precepts behind gender-based ideology?
