“The results of the record-breaking survey showed female brains are especially active in the prefrontal cortex and limbic system. The prefrontal cortex is responsible for focus and impulse control, while the limbic system controls motivation, behavior and emotions, like mood and anxiety.

The parts of the brain linked with vision and coordination were more active among men.

Researchers say studied differences in male and female brains can reveal how men and women are affected by different diseases and public health problems. Females experience higher rates of Alzheimer’s disease and depression, while men are more likely to be experience conduct-related problems and end up in jail or prison.”
