Scans show that when women are thinking, they dip into the right side of the brain, which specialises in emotional issues. This makes women much better at picking up on cues, such as body language or tone of voice, that men may miss.
Scans confirm that women have larger areas in the brain dedicated to tracking gut feelings, which is why they''re quicker at working out what others are thinking and reach conclusions based on hunches.
Women find it easier to keep strong negative emotions in check because the area of the brain, which deals with anger and aggression, tends to be larger in women than men, the author said.
Brain scans also showed that when a woman is feeling aggressive, she''s much more likely to launch a verbal attack - using the highly active language part of her brain - than a physical one.
Moreover, women generally have lower levels of the brain chemical serotonin than men, and low levels are normally associated with over-activity in the brain''s worry centres, the book stated.
