Interview With Dr. Louann Brizendine, Author of The Female Brain

Author of The Female Brain Shares Her Knowledge

Dr. Louann Brizendine's brain is filled with information about why women and men act the way they do. As the founder of UCSF's Women's Mood and Hormone Clinic, the neuropsychiatrist uses brain science to try to give us insights into our behavior. She wrote The Female Brain, which looks at the female brain from birth, to motherhood, to menopause, and followed up with The Male Brain, which came out earlier this year.

Dr. Brizendine's notion that differences between the sexes can be traced to the brain has been met with significant criticism, and some have claimed to debunk her conclusions. I spoke with her at the Women's Conference, and she explained her findings, while also noting that there is a wide variety of behavior in either sex. Check out my interview above.
