The left, right and centre of male and female brain politics

Lecture by Keith Kendrick, gresham Professor of Physic (and other biological sciences)


The two sides of our brain are not functionally equivalent and although this has often been considered to be a human evolutionary trait associated with the development of language, it is clear that this asymmetrical nature of brain function can be traced back even to the most primitive species. Why has the brain evolved this way? Although the interconnections between the two sides of the brain give us a unified perception and awareness of the world it can be shown that in reality we have two rather independent interpretations going on simultaneously. There are also a number of notable differences between the ways male and female brains function in this respect and which can go at least some way towards explaining why we often have problems understanding each other!
