the corpus collosum in the female brain contains an abundance of nerve connections linking the right and left hemisphere; they found this not to be true in the male brain. Thus, there is some neurophysiological evidence that males do tend to separate and compartmentalize “feeling” and “logic,” while females tend to synthesize them.” The obvious problem is that as soon as researchers declare that the male brain is neurologically separated, they declare his brain normal and the brain of a synthesizing female becomes a source of “aberrations” and ambivalence.
