Article. Are brains of men and women different? Over 100 years of research says - no. First science stated that larger brains of men make them more intelligent, but no relationship between brain size and intellect was found. Following this logic, elephants should be more intelligent than all men, which we believe is not the case. Size of individual regions of teh brain was not related to intelligence either. Brains of different people are simply too different. It was concluded that corpus callosum (the part joining both sides of the brain) is larger in women, but this is actually the case for all smaller brains, and is not relevant to women only. Actually, brains of men and women are more alike than different, and if you only had a brain to decide, you would not be able to distinguish man from woman. Therefore we must remain with conclusion that all brain differences are acquired and not innate - if we use specific skills, brain areas that manage this develop better. If you drive more often, following tradition or stereotype, then your dirving skills are better. No other secret here.

Research. Apparently, we are still evolving! Programming code is not activating the usual suspect brain regions - math, language or logic. Such type of activity rather activates a so called multiple demand network, which processes several signals from different areas of the brain and both hemispheres. Sounds quite renaissance!
With, that, I demand that IT profession is classified as exact science!
OK OK, just kidding. But still, brings a whole another perspective on how we think. And code.
