Men’s and Women’s Brains are Different; Men Have a Knack for Spatial
The research, which looked at nearly 1000 men, women, girls and boys comes from the University of Pennsylvania and was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
Male brains are wired front to back, with few connections bridging the two hemispheres.
In females, the connections criss-cross between left and right.
These differences might explain why men, in general, tend to be better at learning and performing a single task, like cycling or navigating, whereas women are more equipped for multitasking...
