    Sex differences in the developing brain



    See:
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29930385

    The new left hates all of this, but this is becoming mainstream science.

    "Abstract

    Youth (including both childhood and adolescence) is a period when the brain undergoes dramatic remodeling and is also a time when neuropsychiatric conditions often emerge. Many of these illnesses have substantial sex differences in prevalence, suggesting that sex differences in brain development may underlie differential risk for psychiatric symptoms between males and females. Substantial evidence documents sex differences in brain structure and function in adults, and accumulating data suggests that these sex differences may be present or emerge during development. Here we review the evidence for sex differences in brain structure, white matter organization, and perfusion during development. We then use these normative differences as a framework to understand sex differences in brain development associated with psychopathology. In particular, we focus on sex differences in the brain as they relate to anxiety, depression, psychosis, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity symptoms. Finally, we highlight existing limitations, gaps in knowledge, and fertile avenues for future research.

    I doubt this will change the opinion of those who believe that there are no sex differences and that observed differences between men and women are caused only by differences in socialization.

    Yes, unfortunately "blank slate-ism" is still alive and well in the social sciences. It's not just the new left, you could say it goes back to Lysenkoism in the Soviet Union that even tried to deny that Mendelian genetics applied to cereal crops. However, the natural sciences have an advantage over the social sciences. By being rigorously evidence driven, they produce genuine new knowledge, rather than "knowledge" that reflects the political fashions of the day. In the end, the truth will out.

    Well this is actually all utter nonsense. Yes, the brain constantly affects this. But everything is justified by our instinct. Personally, I met people who do not need it at all and they better live without him. Yes, they are difficult to understand, but in any case they are. Personally, I am sometimes a fan of watching various videos on this topic and do not see anything wrong with this http://tastefulcelebs.com . This is a small example of my hobby.

    I couldn't agree more. However, the link to a porn site that you included in your post is possibly not relevant to this forum.
