For many years, research has claimed that men and women’s brain are wired differently, but a new research has dismissed such claims.
According to Professor Gina Rippon, a neuroscientist from the University of Aston, there is no difference between male and female brains.
She said that gender differences were a result of cultural and environmental factors.
The neuroscientist claims that segregation happens when children are given different toys; that is, it occurs from a young age, when boys are given toys and books that differ from those given to girls.
She reveals that this segregation can change the way their brains develop.
Speaking at the British Science Festival in Swansea, she said: “There is no such thing as a male or female brain.
“The brain is a mosaic and every brain is different for every individual.”
