"Men, women, and brains"

A dangerous topic, indeed. Nonetheless:
See, based on radioactive imaging and magnetic imaging, science is able to show that the male and female brain work very differently.

Take listening. One study shows that men listen with only one side of their brain, whereas women use both. With all that interconnectedness going on, it's no wonder women remember everything we said from the moment they met us, whereas we can't remember what were we supposed to pick up at the store.

Another study shows that women can listen to two separate conversations at the same time, whereas men can barely follow one, particularly when it involves feelings or the spring sale at Bed Bath & Beyond.
