Shelves: psychology-philosophy , non-fiction , vagina-soliloquies In The Female Brain, neuropsychiatrist Dr. It covers the emotional development and brain processes of women through the various stages of their lives, beginning at the beginning with childhood, moving through the tumultuous teens and the horror that is puberty and progress through womanhood into old age.

In The Female Brain, neuropsychiatrist Dr. The use of science to dissect human behavior is tricky since our moods, reactions, etc are slippery little fish. Hard science it is not. Not all the way through. This is a book for the layman. Sweeping statements are made about entire genders. Which is not to say the doctor believes "all" women do this or that. Regardless, I found the entire book entertaining and, admittedly, quite a bit of it to be enlightening, as I imagine it might be to most men.

These hormones in turn are determined by a combination of genetics and rearing but developed over time as a reaction to evolutionary necessities. All of which enforce behavior which you know of as a set of common stereotypes.

This writing itself is awful -- an overly breezy example of the worst of pop science. It reads like a long magazine article written in a chatty style which among other things is directed towards an exclusively female audience. Worse, the science is poor, relying mostly on case study from private practice and completely irrelevant animal studies giving 0 background on studies. Just reporting findings is fine in these kind of books, but they should at least make a coherent argument.

Brizendine claims that the lack of sensation resulted in lack of bonding between pup and mother, and these poor rat pups as a consequence suffered from a host of problems later in the experiment. Therefore, a woman should breast-feed. Wow -- I think I need a little more information before I can accept that line of reasoning.

On the other hand, I do think that brain chemistry is extremely important in determining our moods and behavior. I can buy the basic premise. How does estrogen protect brain cells? How does oxytocin create feelings of relaxation? Is sadness for a woman the same thing as sadness for me? None of these questions even get asked.



Al decir frases de dos o tres palabras, acostumbraba utilizar su sonrisa contagiosa y los movimientos significativos de cabeza para comunicarse y, efectivamente, lo lograba. Joseph se apoderaba de las piezas que sus amigas y ella empleaban para hacer una casa. Pero lo que la cultura no nos ha dicho es que, en realidad, es el cerebro el que dicta la diferencia de dichas conductas. No existe un cerebro unisex. Las chicas nacen dotadas de circuitos de chicas y los chicos nacen dotados de circuitos de chicos. Cuando nacen, sus cerebros son diferentes y son los cerebros los que dirigen sus impulsos, sus valores y su misma realidad. Un golpe grave en la cabeza en el sitio correspondiente puede implicar que se pierda la capacidad de oler o de gustar.
