Features of The Female Brain PDF
The Female Brain PDF-Why are women more verbal than men? Why do women remember details of fights that men can’t remember at all? Why do women tend to form deeper bonds with their female friends than men do with their male counterparts? These and other questions have stumped both sexes throughout the ages.
Now, pioneering neuropsychiatrist Louann Brizendine, M.D., brings together the latest findings to show how the unique structure of the female brain determines how women think, what they value, how they communicate, and who they love.
While doing research as a medical student at Yale, and then as a resident and faculty member at Harvard, Louann Brizendine discovered that almost all of the clinical data in existence on neurology, psychology, and neurobiology focused exclusively on males. In response to the overwhelming need for information on the female mind, Brizendine established the first clinic in the country to study and treat women’s brain function.
In The Female Brain, Dr. Brizendine distills all of her findings and the latest information from the scientific community in a highly accessible book that educates women about their unique brain/body/behavior.
The result: women will come away from this audiobook knowing that they have a lean, mean, communicating machine. Men will develop a serious case of brain envy.

Louann Brizendine, M.D., (born December 30, 1952) is an American scientist, a neuropsychiatrist who is both a researcher and a clinician and professor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). She is the author of two books: The Female Brain (2006), and The Male Brain (published in 2010).
Research and career
Brizendine’s research concerns women’s moods and hormones. She graduated in neurobiology from UC Berkeley, attended Yale School of Medicine, and completed a residency in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. She is board-certified in psychiatry and neurology and is an endowed clinical professor. She joined the faculty of UCSF Medical Center at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute in 1988, and now holds the Lynne and Marc Benioff-endowed chair of psychiatry. At UCSF, Brizendine carries out clinical, teaching, writing, and research activities.
In 1994, Brizendine founded the UCSF Women’s Mood and Hormone Clinic, and continues to serve as its director.
Brizendine also teaches courses to medical students, residents, and other physicians throughout the country, on the neurobiology of hormones, mood disorders, anxiety problems, and changes in sexual interest due to hormones.
Bestselling author status
Brizendine’s book The Female Brain was reviewed both positively and negatively, especially one piece of content pertaining to linguistics and language. She later acknowledged that this book overemphasized gender-based differences, saying: “Males and females are more alike than they’re different. After all, we are the same species”.
The Female Brain was loosely adapted as a romantic comedy movie of the same name in 2017. Brizendine served as the inspiration for the film’s main character.
She has also written The Male Brain and admitted that her books emphasize the differences between men and women, which has led to her “best-selling” success.
Brizendine did her undergraduate work from 1972–76 at UC Berkeley, where she received a bachelor of arts in neurobiology. She studied for her MD from 1976–81 at the Yale School of Medicine. She subsequently did a residency in psychiatry, MMHC, from 1982–85 at the Harvard Medical School.
From 1985–88, Brizendine was on the faculty at Harvard, and from 1988 onwards at UC San Francisco.

Parker S “I am 50 pages into this book, and I cannot finish it.
This book makes me hate my own gender, and, chapter after chapter, says that all women’s bad behavior is a result of their hormones and “it’s just how we’re wired.” Furthermore, it only discusses the stereotypical female traits. (Boy crazy, obsessed about our looks, and not as good at math).
I was so looking forward to reading a book about the female brain and it’s differences from the male brain, but this is a pigeon-holing cop-out.”
