Is there a floor in our brain?
Is there a difference between the brains of men and women? Are there any intelligent differences related to sex? Why are the representatives of different sexes are often perceived exactly the same life situations differently? All these questions have answers to a special science called neuroscience. Scientists working in this field of science, engaged in the study of structure and development of the human nervous system.
What is Neurobiology?
Neuroscience - the science that studies the structure and functioning of the nervous system. In addition, within the scope of his interests also include neuroscientists to study the behavior of humans and animals.
The study of the brain, in essence, is an interdisciplinary science that borders with genetics, physiology and biochemistry. So, it is neuroscience completely denied the fact, who claimed that the human brain is plastic and capable of absorbing new information only at a young age. According to the new research, the brain of any living being is able to learn all his life, as well as have the opportunity to grow, to adapt and change. According to the basic provisions of the neurobiology of human learning any new skill is able to develop the brain in absolutely any age. At the same time, if it make it impossible to exercise their cognitive abilities, the brain cells can lose their ability to plasticity.
The phrase "You live - and learn" in neuroscience takes a new meaning
Do men brain differs from female brain?
Despite the fact that for a long time it was thought that the left hemisphere often enjoyed by men, and the right - a woman, there is no scientific evidence that this is true. The only difference, which could be noted scholars, is that the brain of men contains more neural connections within each hemisphere, while the female brain contains the same number of neural connections in the space between the hemispheres. Could this fact somehow affect the way of thinking of both sexes, it is still unknown.

Who is more likely to suffer from mental illness: men or women?
Despite the almost complete identity of the brain of men and women, the prevalence of some mental illness is different depending on the gender. For example, women are more susceptible to diseases such as anxiety, depression and anorexia, while men often suffer from Tourette's syndrome, dyslexia and hyperactivity.
According to research, women are more often exposed to anxiety disorders, while men - hyperactivity.
Do you have the floor of our brain?
From school biology course, we all have known that at the moment of fertilization can occur with type 2 sets of chromosomes: XX-chromosome, meaning that female fetuses, or XY-chromosome, meaning that it's a boy. That Y-chromosome triggers the production of testosterone, which is responsible for development of the fetus in a male shape. A few months after pregnancy, your brain starts to run active male or female hormones, due to which the fetus begins to develop gender identity.
Despite the fact that until the age of three the child does not identifies himself with any particular gender, after reaching that age, he begins to actively include awareness of their gender identity at the time of the adoption of certain decisions. Thus, children aged three to five years, often prefer to play with their children only their sex.
From the age of three children are aware of their gender identity
Despite the fact that our floor is laid set of chromosomes in the womb, it is believed that the floor of the brain does not always coincide with the floor physiological. Due to the fact that the absence of feelings about your sex satisfaction may occur in childhood, the question of the formation of gender identity still remains controversial, generating a large number of topics for discussion.
And what do you think: our floor is formed in accordance with the gender identity or according to gender self-identification? Share your comments on this subject in our Telegram-chat.
