One Track Mind
In an excerpt from the new book, Sex on the Brain by Dr. G. Amen (amen!), Chatelaine magazine (isn't it great for everyone when I get caught up on my reading???!!!) has synopsized the results of a timely his and hers brain scan. The results are as follows (and are not terribly surprising):
* "When a man's brain is in a resting state, at least 70 percent of his brain is shut down. On the other hand, when women were resting, at least 90 percent of their brain was active, confirming that women are always thinking..."
* "When asked to think of nothing, men's brains were more active in the more primitive physical activity centers, while women's brains were more active in the emotional centers."
* "Left to themselves, men will think about sex or their jump shot; women will think about their spouse, their children or parents."
