A pioneering study has shown for the first time that the brains of men and women are wired up differently which could explain some of the stereotypical differences in male and female behaviour, scientists have said.
Researchers found that many of the connections in a typical male brain run between the front and the back of the same side of the brain, whereas in women the connections are more likely to run from side to side between the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
This difference in the way the nerve connections in the brain are “hardwired” occurs during adolescence when many of the secondary sexual characteristics such as facial hair in men and breasts in women develop under the influence of sex hormones, the study found.
The researchers believe the physical differences between the two sexes in the way the brain is hardwired could play an important role in understanding why men are in general better at spatial tasks involving muscle control while women are better at verbal tasks involving memory and intuition.
Psychological testing has consistently indicated a significant difference between the sexes in the ability to perform various mental tasks, with men outperforming women in some tests and women outperforming men in others. Now there seems to be a physical explanation, scientists said.
“These maps show us a stark difference - and complementarity - in the architecture of the human brain that helps to provide a potential neural basis as to why men excel at certain tasks, and women at others,” said Ragini Verma, professor of radiology at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
“What we've identified is that, when looked at in groups, there are connections in the brain that are hardwired differently in men and women. Functional tests have already shown than when they carry out certain tasks, men and women engage different parts of the brain,” Professor Verma said.
The research was carried out on 949 individuals - 521 females and 428 males - aged
That why AAPL is eating Samsung alive go away Samsungs dont last 3 months before the problems start they are plastic #$%$
News is coming this week, make sure you go all in Monday morning
Sentiment: Strong Buy
have an iphone 5... i used a galaxy s4 today and it was night and day difference. The screen was much easier to see and going to websites on the galaxy phone was much much faster and i didnt have to zoom in just to see a webpage. Opening apps was much faster as well and this isnt even the latest phone. apple is really going to have to put a good processor and lots of ram into the iphone 6... why buy an iphone when samsung phones are so much better?
people need to realize that its not such a horrible thing for there to be a temporary pull back.. Going straight up nearly everyday im less inclined to hold the stock.. if the stock has a minor correction say 2-4 dollars then i would be more likely to buy the stock...
I know you try to be funny and what not. Never the less your messages carry a subject matter to it's conclusion. I like to read your messages and they carry a meaning and mostly make sense. I have a feeling that you are well read specially in economics hence your predictions are mostly true. Keep up the good work ol'chap.
p.s. not trying to brown nose you. Just feel that somebody ought to appreciate you.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
That's apple. Analyst are never correct. Especially this guy when it comes to timing of launch dates. Stop trying to guess because AAPL always proves you wrong. Dum #$%$.
the last time the broader indices corrected (2010) Apple just kept heading higher, $$ flooded in then, so expect a replay if the indices pull back any time soon.
won't even take that long, when Apple starts a move off of lows ($89.09) like it has recently it runs harder and harder before retracing. GT Advanced tech will be dragged north in concert too, watch and see, 2 to own in 2014.
AAPL stock is now safer place to be than Amazon which is dependent on US Consumers who's incomes are falling unless they have government or finance or govt. related jobs. Is now safer place to be than GOOGL which keeps missing forecasts, and will be getting Eyeballs Ad Revenues for the bottom / poorer 80% of the world. The bottom half of those eyeballs are worth about $0 to Advertisers, as what's the point advertising to the bottom half of the world that makes $2 or at most $10 a day.
