From Discover Magazine: Headlines in various news sources reporting on a new study claim that women’s brains have been found to be more active than men’s brains. However, the study only measured blood flow, not brain activity.
“These results do not mean that women’s brains are more active, or that women use more of their brains, or that they’re prone to ‘overthinking’. The results simply don’t tell us that. All we know is that more blood flows through blood vessels in the female brain. There could be many possible explanations for this.”
