    Re: Woman Smart, Man Smarter

    They would all deny that statement of course. Can't be true!! They'd use that little part of their brain that allows them to believe that they are far better drivers than men too.

    On a date with a University educated girl, we decided to go ten pin bowling before going on to the cinema. About half way through the first game,

    Her: 'How many skittles are there then?'
    Me: 'What? In 10 pin bowling?
    Her: 'Yes'
    Me: 'About 11'

    Re: Woman Smart, Man Smarter

    Mrs deadb0y slaps me silly on IQ tests.. Seriously, she kick my arse from here to next week but, given a day to day "problem" she's in trouble.. The difference between me and her.. Academics! She is academically far smarter than me but when push comes to shove I can out think her 10 fold!

    Also, why is it a controversial study? Is that how humanity labels the truth now? Controversial?

    heh.. well. there are some variations.... I do bowl sometimes.. but I'd like to try "duck-pin" or "candle-pin" bowling... which I understand is mainly concentrated in New England... (mainly Vermont and New Hampshire)

    Just went to have a look on You Tube at those two versions that you mentioned. The duck-pin bowling looks especially great - the velocity that they get on those balls is crazy! I'd probably end up throwing mine into the next lane at those speeds. Fore!!!

    You definitely need to have a bash at that.

    Think yourself lucky mate. Although there is easy access to 10 pin bowling over here in Blighty, our alternative isn't duck-pin....it's either 'flat green' or 'crown green' bowls. Never played either to be honest as when I've seen it on the TV...I've usually slipped into a severe coma through extreme boredom.

    Men 4 Points Ahead?
    by James Thompson

    https://anonym.to/http://www.unz.com...-points-ahead/

    It is a paradox that males have a larger average brain size than females, that brain size is positively associated with intelligence, and yet numerous experts have asserted that there is no sex difference in intelligence. This paper presents the developmental theory of sex differences in intelligence as a solution to this problem. This states that boys and girls have about the same IQ up to the age of 15 years but from the age of 16 the average IQ of males becomes higher than that of females with an advantage increasing to approximately 4 IQ points in adulthood.

    See the connections! This relates to brain function (and personality). See post "human mate preferences over 37 countries".

    Male brains (top) show greater connectivity front-to-back, while female brains (bottom) are more connected across the hemispheres.
    https://anonym.to/https://en.wikiped...ex_differences

    Significant differences between male and female hemispheric rivalry and dominance have been established. Male brains have significantly better global and rivalry efficiency between the hemispheres, whereas female brains possess considerably better local efficiency within the RHS.

    Edited by Charles Gross, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, and approved November 1, 2013 (received for review September 9, 2013)

    Significance

    Sex differences are of high scientific and societal interest because of their prominence in behavior of humans and nonhuman species. This work is highly significant because it studies a very large population of 949 youths (8–22 y, 428 males and 521 females) using the diffusion-based structural connectome of the brain, identifying novel sex differences. The results establish that male brains are optimized for intrahemispheric and female brains for interhemispheric communication. The developmental trajectories of males and females separate at a young age, demonstrating wide differences during adolescence and adulthood. The observations suggest that male brains are structured to facilitate connectivity between perception and coordinated action, whereas female brains are designed to facilitate communication between analytical and intuitive processing modes.
    Abstract

    Sex differences in human behavior show adaptive complementarity: Males have better motor and spatial abilities, whereas females have superior memory and social cognition skills. Studies also show sex differences in human brains but do not explain this complementarity. In this work, we modeled the structural connectome using diffusion tensor imaging in a sample of 949 youths (aged 8–22 y, 428 males and 521 females) and discovered unique sex differences in brain connectivity during the course of development. Connection-wise statistical analysis, as well as analysis of regional and global network measures, presented a comprehensive description of network characteristics. In all supratentorial regions, males had greater within-hemispheric connectivity, as well as enhanced modularity and transitivity, whereas between-hemispheric connectivity and cross-module participation predominated in females. However, this effect was reversed in the cerebellar connections. Analysis of these changes developmentally demonstrated differences in trajectory between males and females mainly in adolescence and in adulthood. Overall, the results suggest that male brains are structured to facilitate connectivity between perception and coordinated action, whereas female brains are designed to facilitate communication between analytical and intuitive processing modes.

    Male Brain Connectivity Advantages

    Occipital Lobe:
    visual processing of the eyes.

    Cerebellum:
    muscle control of jobs and sports.
    In humans, the cerebellum plays an important role in motor control [muscle control]... The human cerebellum does not initiate movement, but contributes to coordination, precision, and accurate timing: it receives input from sensory systems of the spinal cord and from other parts of the brain, and integrates these inputs to fine-tune motor activity. Cerebellar damage produces disorders in fine movement, equilibrium, posture, and motor learning in humans.
    …...
    In addition to its direct role in motor control, the cerebellum is necessary for several types of motor learning, most notably learning to adjust to changes in sensorimotor relationships.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerebellum
    Lateralization of brain function (is exclusively male):
    “left brain” language or “right brain” spatial or math stuff. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latera...brain_function

    Parietal Lobe:
    The parietal lobe plays important roles in integrating sensory information from various parts of the body, knowledge of numbers and their relations, and in the manipulation of objects.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parietal_lobe
    Homunculus:
    Pain tolerance and pain understanding or processing.
    A cortical homunculus is a distorted representation of the human body, based on a neurological "map" of the areas and proportions of the brain dedicated to processing motor functions, or sensory functions, for different parts of the body.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cortical_homunculus
    Wernicke’s Area:
    Wernicke's speech area, is one of the two parts of the cerebral cortex that are linked to speech (the other is Broca's area). It is involved in the comprehension or understanding of written and spoken language (in contrast to Broca's area that is involved in the production of language).
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernicke%27s_area
    Lack of, Receptive Aphasia; Therefore, they may produce a large amount of speech without much meaning.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Receptive_aphasia
    Gustatory Cortex:
    Men are better and more numerous professional cooks, and care more about cooking than women.
    The primary gustatory cortex is a brain structure responsible for the perception of taste.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustatory_cortex

    Limbic Cortex aka Lizard Brain:
    Men have more connections to this area. Men are more cautious and responsible for their own well-being. Men exhibit a greater and more effective fight-or-flight response.

    Optic Radiation Area:
    ...are axons from the neurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus to the primary visual cortex.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optic_radiation
    Lack of, Quadrantanopia, aka quadrant anopia; refers to an anopia affecting a quarter of the field of vision.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadrantanopia

    Speculation:

    1)
    Males' concepts of responsibility, loyalty, honor, and dignity form bonds between thought and the external world. Men combine processing the external world through the cerebellum, occipital lobe, and other areas with connections to the front, thinking part of the brain.

    2)
    Females’ early, innate ability to deceive and pretend or role-play may be a combined result of many connections between the hemispheres, more connections to the frontal lobe, and few connections to (external) visual and physical senses.

    3)
    Females’ few connections to the somatic sensory cortex may result in the use of few connections to the limbic system causing ‘disconnected’ or ‘unreasonable’ reactions to sudden threats or unknown sensations.
    The somatosensory system is a part of the sensory nervous system. The somatosensory system is a complex system of sensory neurons and pathways that responds to changes at the surface or inside the body.

    Re: Woman Smart, Man Smarter

    The NeuroScience of Intelligence by Dr. Richard J. Haier

    What I Learaned:

    Brains are best with the most. More connections and more activity is a better brain. Activity means it is working. Less activity is associated with memory and ‘recall’ from learning.

    The back of the brain is important. Senses work as much as other parts of the brain. The more your senses work, the more your brain works. Einstein’s brain had a lot of things in the back.

    Female brain activity does not vary between IQs. Females have more white matter integrated into the brain processes. They have smaller, more 'effecient' brains. Although women have white matter on a small scale, the main 'white fiber', the 'arcuate fasciculus', connecting the front of the brain to the back of the brain is more important and more effective in men.

    Men have more activity according to IQ, and more connections in general for the back of the brain. Males have more grey matter for the cerebral cortex. [Cortex means the outer layer of an object. Lobe means the inner layer.]

    Best Quote:
    Page 104: Higher IQ was correlated to brain areas that show weaker inter-heispheric homotopic connectivity, suggesting that decreased inter-hemispheric communication is related to higher intelligence. Several of the homotopic areas are included in PFIT, but this study adds a new dimension of inter-hemisphere communication. Age and sex differences were also reported. For example, higher-IQ females showed less homotopic connectivity in the prefrontal cortex and posterior midline regions. Younger participants (below age 25) with higher IQs also showed increased homotopic connectivity patterns.
    What I Think:

    In the event of brain damage, many areas of the brain are interchangable or adaptable. Phinneus Gage is a popular brain story, and other brains with damage are similar.

    The Brodmann Areas are the popular names for brain regions and function. Many of these functions are both mental or intellectual or thinking and physical or ‘sense’-ual. Some areas of the brain and some ‘mental’ or thinking functions may have a direct relationship to physical or sense-ual abilities. As the brain serves a large function for the Central Nervous System, such nerve impulses may have a symbiotic relationship with ‘mental’ or thinking activity.

    The Ancient Greeks had their personality types based on blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm. Modern attractiveness (including the Golden Ratio and symmetry) relates to judgments of ability. So physical nerve function may relate to the physical brain and thought.

    Male-Female Chapter Summaries:

    Early Studies Chapter:

    Page 76-81, The 1995 PET Scan Studies
    tested brain ‘efficiency hypothesis’.
    22 men and 22 women students at UCI
    men showed increased ‘activity’ correlating to greater math IQ; women do not show this correlation.
    Watching movies 2003 study shows reasoning ability is correlated to posterior lobe.
    Greater activity, rather than more efficiency.
    [rather than ‘efficiency’ or quantity, “not all brains work the same” in quality. Page 78]

    “In the 22 women, we found no systematic statistical relationship between mathematical reasoning ability and brain activity.” page 78.
    “The evidence was mounting that IQ was not just a function of [the] frontal lobes.” page 79.
    Between 1997 and 2000, many “studies found that multiple areas across the entire brain were activated during reasoning.”
    increased activity in “temporal lobes” page 78.

    [relates to Pinneus Gage; brain areas and brain function adaptability/interchangeability for brain damage.]
    [chicken and egg relationship for nerve impulse and brain cellular function activating a brain regional function; many regions of brain have a thinking and a physical aspect. Similar to Greek 4 Perosonalities and their physical ‘causes’ or associations.]


    Page 80-81:

    ‘Efficiency’ is probably more directly related to memory and “learning” than intelligence. Page 80.

    Brain glucose metabolism studies support the effectiveness and “meaning” of IQ tests. Page 80.

    PET scans in the television study prove that not all brains “work the same way.” page 80.

    One suspicious study claimed that the region of intelligence is “a specific lateral frontal lobe system” according to a PET “blood flow” study (Duncan et al., 2000) published in ‘Science’ magazine. Major flaws and questions of the study included “description of the subjects in terms of sex”. Page 81. [see male and female connections study of 2014 post.]

    Subsequently, Dr. Hjohn Duncan, the research leader, apparently abandoned the frontal lobe-centered model of intelligence and came to the view that the other areas also were involved consistent with virtually all other studies available at that time. Page 81.
    At the time, journals like ‘Science’ were reluctant to publish intelligence research, owing in large part to the controversies of the 1970s and 1980s concerning average group differences.
    [In the same time period, D. F. Swaab recounts receiving death threats by publicly stating the brain differences between the straight male group and the groups of females and homosexual males in the book ‘We Are Our Brains’ (by D. F. Swaab)


    Parieto-Frontal Integration Theory.
    P-FIT is proven correct for a decade. Page 92.

    wikipedia: “There is little published criticism of the P-FIT, and it stands as the best current model for the biological basis of human intelligence.”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pariet...ith_the_theory

    wikipedia: “The P-FIT is highly compatible with the neural efficiency hypothesis, and is supported by evidence of the relationship between white matter integrity and intelligence.”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pariet...f_intelligence


    White Matter Sub Chapter:

    Occipital and temporal lobes interact with parietal and frontal lobes for and during “intelligence”. Page 93.
    “major white matter fibers” called the arcuate fasciculus is “important for intelligence”.
    It connects the front part to the back part.
    problem solving begins in the sensory regions.

    Einstein’s Brain Sub Chapter:

    Page 95: Einstein’s Brain : “showed more tissue and more neural support in the parietal lobe”...”where the men show correlations with IQ and the women didn’t.”
    no significant visual anatomical differences with average brains.



    Page 101:

    Networks in the brain tend to be “small-world” connections in that most clustering of connectivity is around adjacent brain areas or “neighborhoods.” There are also connections among more distant regions in the brain through hubs that are connected to each other; these are the so-called rich clubs (van den Heuvel et al., 2012). Small-world networks tend to allow more efficient transmission of information across shorter distances with less wiring (white matter fibers) and rich clubs foster faster communication across more distant brain areas. These networks develop at different times and rates from infancy through early adulthood. [see male and female brain connection 2014 study pdf] The factors that influence how networks develop are not yet understood, but likely are related to individual differences in cognitive abilities.

    page 104:

    This is called homotopic connectivity and the results were counter-intuitive. Higher IQ was correlated to brain areas that show weaker inter-heispheric homotopic connectivity, suggesting that decreased inter-hemispheric communication is related to higher intelligence. Several of the homotopic areas are included in PFIT, but this study adds a new dimension of inter-hemisphere communication. Age and sex differences were also reported. For example, higher-IQ females showed less homotopic connectivity in the prefrontal cortex and posterior midline regions. Younger participants (below age 25) with higher IQs also showed increased homotopic connectivity patterns.

    [Resting state brain activity correlates to PFIT measurements and brain regions.]
