The Stanford School of Medicine recently conducted a study revealing that genes play a huge factor in the development of the brain. The study further revealed that genes are responsible for the different brain features between the female and male genders. The study authors further revealed that one gender’s brain possesses more energetic genes in the brain’s gray matter.

The genes accountable for behaviors such as mating and dating differ from one gender to another. The study authors used genes in male mice and discovered that they quickly discovered a stranger’s sex, and the female is open-minded to maternal instincts and mating. Unfortunately, the same genes also risk getting certain illnesses, including autism and Alzheimer’s Disease.

How the researchers conducted the study 

The study authors reviewed four sections of mice’s brains similar to the brain development present in human beings. The team then extracted specific tissues from each section that possessed neurons enhanced with sex hormones. From this analysis, the research team identified a minimum of 600 contrasts in the female mice at different levels of the estrous cycle. The estrous cycle is equivalent to the menstrual cycle in the female gender.

The study authors published their findings through various platforms such as Mail Online, among other publications. According to Professor a lead researcher, Professor Nirao Shah revealed that the four portions possess multiple genes that rely on the menstrual cycle phase. Shah further explained that the female’s menstrual cycle was alarming and that the hormone levels change from time to time.

The study reinforces beliefs that men and women are different

The study reinforces past sayings that men and women are from different planets due to the significant differences between them. One of the previous studies conducted by John Gray, the best-selling author who wrote a relationship guide that reveals the similarities and differences between the female and male genders.

The study authors also revealed that at least 207 genes are the risk ingredients for various brain disorders, including ASD (autism spectrum disorder). The genes are more ordinary in the male gender than females, with 29 active genes, while females have ten genes.
