Men's Brains vs. Women's Brains

Licensed professional counselor Kevin Hinckley explored the difference between men's brains and women's brains during a lecture given Tuesday, Aug. 16, as a part of Campus Education Week at BYU.

Brother Hinckley walked students through what makes them different from one another by gender, and noted key points about each gender he felt both sides needed to know in order to carry out a happy and successful marriage relationship.

He pointed out that even though men have 4% more brain cells than women and about 100 grams more brain tissue, women have more connections going on between their brain cells and they also have a larger corpus collusum, which allows them to transfer data between the right and left hemispheres of the brain faster and easier, thus giving them almost full function of both sides of their brains while men are more limited.
