While doing research as a medical student at Yale and then as a resident and faculty member at Harvard, Louann Brizendine discovered that almost all of the clinical data in existence on neurology, psychology, and neurobiology focused exclusively on males. In response to the overwhelming need for information on the female mind, Brizendine established the first clinic in the country to study and treat women’s brain function. At the same time, The National Institute of Health began including female subjects in almost all of its studies for the first time. The result has been an explosion of new data on the female brain in recent years.
In THE FEMALE BRAIN, Dr. Brizendine distills all of this information in a highly accessible way in order to describe the unique brain-body-behavior of women. For instance, why are women more verbal than men? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? Dr. Brizendine explores these and many other similar questions.
This revolutionary book combines two decades of Brizendine’s own work, real-life stories from her clinical practice, and all of the latest information from the scientific community at large to provide a truly comprehensive look at the way women’s minds work.
