Many times, women do not have the time or energy to care for themselves, or even to get enough sleep. This course will explore these unique pressures and investigate their origins,…Continue

I cannot express enough how fascinated I was with your books. The summer of 2011 will forever be coined 'the summer of the female brain' according to my boyfriend. It was all I quoted to him the entire season. I drove him crazy, although I think he secretly enjoyed it as well. :)

(CNN) -- As the song goes: "Summer lovin', had me a blast."
But for dads with daughters who are falling in love for the first time, it might be anything but a blast. Unless that KABOOM! is the sound of Dad's heart exploding in sadness.…Continue

From the New Scientist 2012: The sexes may be more alike than we thought. A startling new theory says that some of the disparities between our brains may be there to make us act the same
SEVERAL years ago, the car I was driving was rear-ended by another at a stop sign. No one was hurt, but my passenger and I had to wait around to give a statement to the local police. Later on I asked my companion if he had noticed that the officer addressed most of the questions to him, even though…

After orienting 300,000+ rookie dads-to-be over 22 years in Daddy Boot Camp, with 50,000+ veterans assisting (the real experts on new dads - rookies who return with their 3-6 month old babies), reading The Female Brain and The Male Brain was amazing. It helped explain the core issues faced by new dads, did so without spinning the results in terms of gender neutrality (i.e., men bring nothing unique to the table as dads), and opened the door to us rational men "fixing the problems"…Continue

So does it all get better once you hit menopause? I am turning 54 next month and have not a period since last April. I've been suffering through peri menopausal symptoms since I was 40. But as it turned out, those paled in comparison to what started up when I turned 50.
Since then, I seem to have every menopausal symptom in the book, from flashes to night sweats, insomnia, low mood, low energy, low motivation, zero libido and irritability.
The cognitive effects are the worst…
What do you think of the traditional convention of giving children the father's last name? In recent years, I've noticed more and more couples giving their children both parents' last names connected by a hyphen. While hyphenating is one great option, there seems to be few instances of children being given the mother's last name, while married or as a single parent. Any opinions on this?
In Dr. Brizendine's The Female Brain and The Male Brain, there are dedications in the beginning…Continue
In 'The Female Brain' you give the pronunciation for androstenedione on p.54 and p.87. Page 87 is different from page 54. Which is the most common pronunciation? Thank you for the books. I wish they had been around 40 years ago,but in all likelihood I certainly wouldn't have read them then. I'm just starting 'The Male Brain' now and am curious to discover why I am the way I am.
