My huge brain and your tiny airfield or the Dakotas: the brain and gender

"Women have an eight-lane superhighway for processing emotion, while men have a small country road," writes UCSF neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine in a new book. Men, according to Dr. Brizendine, "have O'Hare Airport as a hub for processing thoughts about sex, where women have the airfield nearby that lands small and private planes." The good doctor's book The Female Brain is reviewed in the San Francisco Chronicle this week. According to the Chronicle, one critic "downplayed the book's explanation of gender differences, saying men and women are 'more like North Dakota and South Dakota.'"
