Our understanding of the science of the brain in general and the differences in the attributes of male and female brains specifically continues to grow and evolve.

  1. How and what we remember: Women tend to take in more through their five senses than men do, and to store more of this material in the brain for later use. Thus they tend to remember more details during a conversation.1

  2. How we process words (including how many and what kinds of words we use): Women use many more words than men while speaking, reading, and writing.2
