The Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology of the National Research Council (NRC) and the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine (TIGEM) of the Telethon Foundation agree on something and have stated so in a coordinated study, which was done in collaboration with other institutes of the CNR, published in the academic scientific journal Nature Communications, and reported on the RaiNews website. Men and women are different. Hallelujah.
Specifically, men and women remember things differently, and underlying these abilities to memorize, which differ between males and females, is “[…] a differentiated brain mechanism that determines how much information to remember during spontaneous learning.”
As a result of painstaking experiments and analysis, the researchers who authored the project showed how males and females activate different areas of the brain when they wish to activate the recollection of a piece of information learned casually and in experience, which they have memorized “out of curiosity,” not consciously. For example, the address of a particularly pleasant restaurant.
Namely, males spontaneously remember more details in the long run than females. In reality, however, it would not be correct to say that females remember “less” than males. “Through a series of brain manipulation techniques, the researchers realized that on a biological level, sex could influence the use of brain circuits. “Indeed, if there were structural differences between the two sexes, it would not be possible to undo them through simple stimulation of the same areas. Instead, the differences are found in the way the same stimuli can turn on different circuits in the two sexes.”
It is not a question of remembering “better” or “worse,” of course. “In brain economy, each complex mental action, in fact, comes at the expense of other actions; therefore, neither is superior to the other, but it all depends on the situation.” Simply, a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man. Period.
