Oddly, this article debunking alleged defects of news stories about gender differences in the brain repeats one of the major features of such stories -- a complete lack of anything but anecdotal reference to the actual study being discussed.
In December, a highly publicized study declared that distinctive wiring
in the brain explains different skill sets in men and women. After
scanning hundreds of participants’ brains, the researchers reported that
men have stronger connections within a given hemisphere, whereas women
have stronger connections between the two.
Paragraphs like this always remind me of cheap horror films where the protagonist has to consult The Professor at The University. I assume the author is referring to Sex differences in the structural connectome of the human brain, but why leave the reader in the dark? This is pretty much how the Daily Mail covered this study, only with the opposite "Mars/Venus" take.
