Womens have more active brain than men

Women’s brains are significantly more active in many more regions than men’s, according to new research.

The study, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, found that women’s brains were significantly more active in many more areas than men’s, especially in the prefrontal cortex which is involved in focus and impulse control and the limbic or emotional areas of the brain responsible for mood and anxiety.However, the visual and coordination centers of the brain were more active in men.

The researchers analyzed a total of 128 brain regions at baseline (at the beginning of the study) and during a concentration task.

They found that women had greater blood flow in the prefrontal cortex compared to men, which may help to explain why women tend to be stronger in the areas of empathy, intuition, collaboration, self-control and showing appropriate concern.
