RPhil - The Gendered Brain: Do you have a female brain or a male brain? Or are we asking the wrong question?

1st December 2021 7:30 pm

For centuries both neuroscience and behavioural science have been pursuing a Hunt the Difference agenda, trying to find ways of characterising the differences between the brains and behaviour of females and males. But are they asking the right questions? Can brain scientists tell the differences between female and male brains? Are females and males really distinguished by their levels of empathy or their map-reading skills? Drawing on new insights from 21st century neuroscience, this talk revisits these old questions and offers answers that might surprise you.
