Recent research suggested that it is pointless to grief over the delivery of a baby girl. There is no difference in terms of functionalities and dexterity of brains between a boy and a girl. The human brain doesn’t consider gender while doing its functions.
This result was published by a science-based international peer-reviewed journal, Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews shows. The conclusion was based on researches conducted over the past 30 years.
The researchers said that although men’s brains are larger in shape than women’s brains, there is no difference between them in terms of the functions of the human brain (cognition stimulation). Even if there is a difference, it is less than 1 percent.
The latest research paper provides even more startling information. Its conclusion has pointed the finger at the attempt to establish male dominance in scientific research over the past three decades.
Bias studies on the functions of the brain
Researchers say that the results of most studies on the human brain over the past three decades have shown a minor difference in the brain size of men and women. Despite this variation, there is no suggestion of gender discrimination in terms of work efficiency and functions. But there is no published journal on this matter because of the fear that those studies’ results could hinder the efforts to establish male hegemony.
Instead, these research papers showed that women’s brains are less likely to be efficient regarding working functions than men’s brains. Researchers named this phenomenon “File drawer effect.” This concept implies that a hypothesis that doesn’t confirm the researchers’ theories goes to the file drawer. It leads to prejudices and biases in published studies.
Researchers remarked, “neurosexism has dominated the last three decades of research papers on the human brain, which is highly objectionable. Whereas, we all know since the nineteenth century, the size of the male brain is 11 percent larger than the female brain.
