    @dm2754 all your "brian" cells just proved that theory a myth.

    The three parts into which this graph seperates the parts of the brain is highly simplified and #2 is just plain inaccurate. The rest is interesting..

    SSHHHH! @dm2754 That`s not politically correct, even if it is true...


    @HedKwab: (nifty name btw!) It`s true, it`s ALL highly simplified! Especially #15 I thought...

    Things going wrong with one`s brain are not "rare" when huge percentages of the population have emotional, mental or cognative disorders (even if most are mild...).

    I`m disturbed to find out we`ve been looking at the back of toilet door men and women for all this time and I thought it was the front.

    Gonna say nope on the explanation of #2. My understanding is that the left hemisphere creates a narrowed focus, whereas the right tends toward wide ranged observant thought. Granted, I`m no Neuroscientist.

    For a better explanation, see this from RSA Animate and Iain McGilchrist on the divided brain.

    the whole left-side/right-side has been disproved by neuroscience. i stopped reading right there.

    what about the 1 billion more brian cells men have then woman

    If English is a foreign language to you, you`re pretty good with it.

    If English is your main or only language, you`re semiliterate.

    In addition to the startling number of linguistic errors you`ve managed to fit into 12 words, you`ve got the numbers wrong and you`ve made the monumental error of confusing a tendency with an absolute difference.

    To answer the question that I think you might have been trying to ask:

    It doesn`t seem to make any difference. Within a wide range, the number of brain cells seems to be unimportant.

    The reason men have about 1 billion more brain cells then woman is because men are more likely to get brian damage. Men also have grater lung capacity muscle mass. And I was just trying to make a Borat joke

    I have dyslexia. And English is not my first language.
    If you argue the point, then you can prove me to be wrong but if your only argument is how bad I wright then you prove yourself an ass.

    @Angilion: The answers to Both your questions are in @dm2754`s profile...
    Had to double check that for proper grammar...

    @dn2754: What that means is: it may be a true difference in numbers (tendency) but it likely is NOT an important difference in performance (outcome).

    You seem to know this already, given your reply...

    >>confusing a tendency with an absolute difference

    want do you mean?

    When comparing two groups, differences can either be absolute (e.g. adult elephants are bigger than adult sheep) or a tendency to varying extents (e.g. there`s some degree of tendency for Norwegians to be slightly taller than Britons).

    The two are very different things indeed. Men having more brain cells than women is a tendency, not the absolute difference you stated.

    "If English is a foreign language to you, you`re pretty good with it."

    I have dyslexia. And English is not my first language.
    If you argue the point, then you can prove me to be wrong but if your only argument is how bad I wright then you prove yourself an ass.

    And you have just proved that you don`t read posts before replying to them.

    It`s impossible to prove you wrong *because you didn`t make any point at all*. I answered the question that I thought you probably meant to ask.

    The poor quality of your post is very relevant because it completely obscures what you meant.

    Also, your number is wrong. The average difference is a *lot* more than 1 billion cells. The average difference is ~10% and there are far more than 10 billion cells in a human brain. The lowest estimate is around 170 billion (weirdly, it`s far from clear how many cells are in human brains - estimates vary from ~170 billion to several trillion!
