The differences between males and females are dramatic and incontrovertible to anyone who's even casually observed animals. My male pug is bigger, stronger, and much more active than his sister. While she spends hours quietly wrapped around my feet and hides if she knows it's cold or raining outside,he wanders through the house in search of a favorite toy, nips at her leg to encourage her to get up and play with him, and loves to go out for walks, taking on every pigeon in his path. Why are they different?

Why Men Never Remember And Women Never Forget

The differences between males and females are dramatic and incontrovertible to anyone who's even casually observed animals. My male pug is bigger, stronger, and much more active than his sister. While she spends hours quietly wrapped around my feet and hides if she knows it's cold or raining outside,he wanders through the house in search of a favorite toy, nips at her leg to encourage her to get up and play with him, and loves to go out for walks, taking on every pigeon in his path.

Why are they different? Over the past decade, there has been a crescendo of interest in exploring the precise nature and importance of the differences between men and women. The new science of gender-specific medicine is producing an amazing appreciation of how our biological sex modifies the way we operate in the world and even our experiences of disease.

We are different, and vastly so, in every system of the body, from the skin that covers us, to the hearts that beat within our chests, to the guts that process the food we eat.

Nowhere is this more true than in the brain, the 3-pound organ that houses all that makes us human: our passions, our insights, our appreciation of the created world, our entire intellectual and emotional lives. XIV [During an argument, woman's' body is in full battle readiness. As she processes each new stressor the untidy house, the unmade cookies, the errant e-mail her brain signals for hormones to help her cope with the stress, by raising her blood pressure and pushing her heart to beat at a rate almost twice what's normal.

In women, the amygdala, the part of the brain that receives and responds to stressors, has extensive connections to the parts of the brain that control blood pressure and heart rate. Men on the other hand side, have a less extensive network.

Levels of this hormone are especially high when women are under stress making oxytocin a gender-specific and powerful tool that helps women to meet challenges by recruiting others. This means that he deals with one thing at a time: He identifies a problem, comes up with a solution, and moves on.

First, it prolongs the secretion of the stress hormone, cortisol, so a woman feels more stressed in the moment than a man in the same situation. Estrogen also activates a larger field of neurons in the brain than is the case with men; these activated cells provide women with the network needed to form a much more detailed memory of the sequences of events.

And [ If a female blue-headed wrasse is the largest in her group, and there are no males wrasses around, she will change her behavior to that of a male fish within minutes of the discovery.

Her female reproductive organs change more slowly but will become male within days after the behavioral change.

We humans have a hormone called vasopressin, an analog of the brain chemical in the fish that instigates the behavioral change. This is the area involved in judgment and decision making. This pruning process goes on from the final month of pregnancy and continues long after birth.

Synapses, or connections between cells, that don't get reinforced by stimulation from the outside world atrophy and eventually disappear. The connections that are stimulated grow stronger and become permanent.

You have to use it, or you lose it, and practice makes perfect. If we don't have appropriate input during these times, the systems can be impaired forever, and there are all too many examples of abused and neglected children who are cut off from interaction during crucial developmental windows and will never develop normal language skills as a result. Less tragically, it's what makes the differences between siblings and even identical twins who carry the same genetic information. For example, precisely how men and women find their way through new and even familiar environments was tested in an interesting experiment done in Canada using a virtual reality maze.

Not only did men and women activate completely different areas of their brains to negotiate the space, but they used different strategies to find the exit. However [ Baby girls placed near a male fetus in utero seem to benefit from the additional boost of testosterone to which their brothers expose them: They have enhanced ability, for example, to solve threedimensional problems compared with their singleton sisters. Men, on the other hand, are looking for someone who is young and healthy enough to reproduce: indeed, many of the physical characteristics that men find most attractive in women are ones that connote youth and good health.

From an evolutionary point of view, it makes perfect sense. In contrast, women can enjoy sexual exchanges for decades longer and sometimes even more after menopause, when the worries of conception aren't a factor anymore. The drug comparison, incidentally, is explicit: In the British study, there was a great deal of overlap between the activity of the brain in love and the brain on euphoria-inducing drugs. The toleration for sleeplessness, lack of appetite, feeling of exhilaration and focus these all characterize the first phase of an infatuation, but they're also very similar to what happens when you do a line of cocaine.

The first is phenyethylamine PEA , a natural amphetamine that elevates our moods [it's one of the chemicals released when we eat chocolate]. In fact, it's the release of PEA that triggers dopamine.

Usually associated with a state of emergency,. Men in particular had increased action in the hypothalamus, which plays an essential role in sexual arousal. We have known for years that the hypothalamus has gender-specific structural differences, but these investigators saw that it behaves differently in response to pornography in men and women.

This structural difference may explain men's greater interest in visual stimulation. But newer research shows that even when women are apparently physically sexually aroused, with clitoral engorgement and a lubricated vagina, they may not feel sexually aroused a disconnected that simply doesn't exist for a man.

Just as important, women can feel interested in sex and aroused, even with very little or no vaginal lubrication. She further proposed that the sexual exchange for women doesn't begin with sexual arousal, but with a desire for increased emotional intimacy.

It is this desire that persuades women to engage in sex. It goes without saying that this requires a sensitive and responsive partner one who will stop, without fal of question, if this experiment fails. The word seduction comes from the Latin, meaning to lead one away from oneself. Physical touch unfortunately, it has to be someone else's touch! Stimulates the production of a very powerful and intoxicating hormone called oxytocin, also called the love hormone because of the feelings it engenders.

It's this hormone that prompts female rats to crouch and raise their hindquarters high in the air, which signals they are receptive to interested males. And there are women who don't always have to have an orgasm to feel sexually satisfied. Comfort, reassurance, tenderness, and a sense of being protected are as important or more so as an orgasm for these women. At that point, the playing field evens out a bit, with an interesting twist.

A study published in the Journal of speech, language, and Hearing Research showed that women lose their ability to access cues from the tone of someone's voice for a period of time after menopause. This is part of the cognitive dissonance that comes from an estrogen dip, the same dip that can also make it difficult for menopausal women to remember details and make decision.

Like those lapses, it has an impact on [women's] ability to navigate the world. In general, humans use the left part of the two symmetrical halves of our brains to produce language and understand speech, and the right for dealing with tasks that involve our physical position and other spatial relationships. Some of the differences between men's and women's brains that may cause differences in the way we process and produce information include the following: Women have more nerve cells in the left half of the brain, the seat of our ability to process language.

In the brain, quantity of cells often does correlate with quality. In the brain of a gymnast, for instance, the part of the brain that controls balance and motor skills is larger than it is in other people, and the more she practices, the larger it gets. Women have a greater degree of connectivity between the two parts of the brain. The thick network of fibers that connect the two halves of the brain, called the corpus callosum, is larger in women than it is in men.

This may lead to greater traffic between the two halves of the brain in women. For example, men and women appear to process single words in a similar fashion, but when they're interpreting full sentences, men tend to use a single specific area in the brain, while women mobilize the same area, but in both sides. A study at Indiana University in showed that women used an area of the brain just above the ears in both halves of their brains in listening to an excerpt from a John Grisham book, while men used the same region, but only on the left side.

In other words, their cells have more messengers at their disposal, and more messengers means more information delivered more efficiently. Researchers believe that women score higher on tests of verbal learning than men, particularly if they are younger, in part because of this higher dopamine availability in their brains. They need to be able to assess aggression in other males to that they can speedily arrange a defense. But they don't score as high as women on the more subtle nonverbal cues that telegraph sadness and fear.

Researchers believe that women's facility with understated cues is an evolutionary adaptation, designed to help women do the job of taking care of infants.

A baby can't tell you that he's hungry or sick. To make sure he gets what he needs, his primary caretaker usually the mother must become very skilled at interpreting nonverbal cues, like a facial expression of the particular tone of a cry. The difference in the way we respond to emotional expressions seems to be connected to a functional difference in the brain. One study showed that when women saw a fearful expression of someone's face, their amygdalas, the brain's warning center, the area that controls fear and our recognition of it, engaged more rapidly than men's did.

Another brain study done in Japan showed that men and women used different parts of the brain to identify whether faces had happy, sad, or neutral expression. The differences were greatest when the study participants were shown sad expressions, which women identified much more accurately than men. Women were more accurate in identifying a wide range of emotions on male faces than they were with those in women's faces.

People suffering from autism, a childhood developmental disorder without a known cause or cure, are characterized by their detachment from other people and the physical environment and by their difficulties in communicating or relating emotionally to other people. This is one of the reasons researchers give for the overwhelming evidence that women have better immediate and delayed recall of the spoken word.

This may set girls up for verbal superiority during development. Other investigators found that the higher the testosterone levels in normal males, the less verbal ability they had. In a fascinating series of experiments, Sally Shaywitz, MD, at Yale University showed that when men and women did an identical word-rhyming task, men activated only one area in the left side of their brains, while women used the same part, but in both hemispheres rather than in just one. In both situations, our brains are working against us, in a sense: Our emotions are high, and the logic center is dimmed.

I certainly wouldn't want to argue before the Supreme Court after really great sex would you? These drives begin the bonding process, and both presumably exist so that we can make babies and thereby continue to propagate the species.

But once the wining and dining is over, and the seed for a new life planted, what is it that drives us to settle down? One thing is for sure: That first flush of love and the chemicals associated wit it don't last.

Donatella Marazziti, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Pisa in Italy, and the researcher who discovered that men's and women's testosterone levels tend to converge when they fall in love, found 2 years later that although subjects were in the same relationships, their testosterone levels had returned to normal. That may be because a. This attachment phase, which also sees the abatement of the infatuation cocktail dopamine, phenyethylamine, and noradrenaline , is accompanied by an increase in other chemicals, which work to strengthen the couple's bond, as well as the feelings of contentment and comfort that we have in the relationship.

While these may not give us the speedlike rush of the infatuation chemicals, they are happy drugs in their own right. Foremost among the chemicals released during this phase are endorphins and oxytocin. We release them when we laugh, and when levels are high, we're social and friendly and relaxed. They're also released when we have an orgasm, and they share responsibility with oxytocin for the hazy euphoria we often experience after sex.

But oxytocin doesn't just show up when we're getting intimate; it also appears during a number of seemingly unrelated functions. For instance, it's associated with smooth muscle contraction during labor. If you want to be happy for a month, fall in love. If you want to be happy for a year, get married.
