As Told by Louann Brizendine, It’s a Dramatic Story of Neurobiology, Differentiation, and Human Survival
Marinating in testosterone in utero shapes the male brain so that the infant is born neurologically perfected to pursue the reproductive imperative. At the same stage, the female brain is being fine-tuned in its estrogen bath as an ideal caretaker—exquisitely refined to ensure the survival of infants in the future.
In her conversation with me—airing for the first time this Wednesday at 1:00 pm Eastern—Louann Brizendine explores the complex and extraordinary development of the brain through a lifetime, paying special attention to neurobiology’s role in the differentiation between the male and female brain
As told by Louann, the latest neuroscientific findings unfold like a story.
You’ll see when you listen to her in this quick video clip about Stage 3—the Adolescent Brain—where she focuses on how the hormones of puberty drive a new level of differentiation between the neurobiology and behavior of adolescent men and women.
