Here’a quick #drawing of the #brain for International Men’s Day!

Happy International Men’s Day! It falls on November 19th.

You can read more about how it began and how it it now celebrated in over 60 countries in this Wikipedia post: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Men’s_Day

Using the Mars symbol for Men, I did a quick sketch of what scientists believe are some key differences in the male brain versus the female brain. The sketch mostly focuses on the differences in grey and white matter but there’s more being discovered!

A couple of the sources I used to get more information about these differences include:
– http://www.webmd.com/balance/features/how-male-female-brains-differ
– http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=girl-brain-boy-brain

Do you know of other articles I should check out that also address what may be different between the female and male brain?

Or do you have different ideas of how to represent the male brain? Let me know 🙂
