Dedicated to the communication of news, science, and information of interest to the brain mapping community, and to sharing and promoting the science of brain mapping.
The purpose and goal of brain mapping is to advance the understanding of the relationship between structure and function in the human brain. Scientists in this field seek to gain knowledge of the physical processes that underlie human sensation, attention awareness and cognition. These results are immediately applicable to surgical intervention, to the design of medical interventions and to the treatment of psychological and psychiatric disorders.
How can my husband and I have such different approaches to the shopping experience? I attribute it to wiring in the brain, and I think it applies to many men and women out there.As a refresher, remember that the left brain is the logical, analytical side of the brain - it is the worker bee, focusing and analyzing one thing at a time. The right brain is free to play - itís the home of imagination, emotional memory and bonding with others.With four times as many connections between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, women are four times as likely to tap into the right brain when encountering a situation. Many factors come into play when going through the shopping process for women - itís all about the ďbig picture.Ē
